Volkswagen Annual Report is “world’s best report 2011”
- ARC Awards presented in New York on Thursday evening
- Volkswagen Group double award winner in world’s largest competition for annual reports
“We are delighted with these awards from one of the most prestigious international competitions in the industry and are pleased to take up the mission to continue combining sound financial reporting with creative corporate communications”, said Stephan Grühsem, General Representative of Volkswagen AG for Group Communications, External Relations and Investor Relations.
The ARC Awards were held for the 26th time this year. With entries from 60 countries, this is the world’s largest competition for annual reports. The judges represent top level investor relations executives, financial executives, writers, designers, and photographers. Apart from content and design the annual reports are also ranked on how well the spirit of the organization is communicated.
Only a few days ago the iPad app version of the Volkswagen Annual Report was honored with the “Digital Communication Award”. Furthermore, the print version won Gold in this year’s “Best of Corporate Publishing” awards. The creative realization is the brainchild of the Mainz-based agency 3st kommunikation.
