Voice Named Benefactor of Polish Culture

The Warsaw Voice was named a Benefactor of Polish Culture and the "best media partner" of cultural events in this country last year as the Ministry of Culture and Art handed out its annual awards at the Royal Castle in Warsaw Oct. 27.

Bank BPH and the Żywiec Group were named Benefactors of Polish Culture in the Sponsor category. The award in the Donor category was shared by the Orange Foundation and U.S. businessman and philanthropist Ronald S. Lauder.

The awards were handed out by the culture minister, Bogdan Zdrojewski, and the director of the Royal Castle, Andrzej Rotermund.

In his acceptance speech, Voice editor-in-chief Andrzej Jonas said that, in today's world, there is no more rewarding way to tell non-Polish speaking readers about Poland than through culture. The Warsaw Voice has reported on political, business and cultural events in Poland and other countries in Central and Eastern Europe for more than two decades.

Lauder was given the award for funding conservation work on the former Auschwitz II Birkenau concentration camp. Bank BPH was singled out for praise for its sponsorship of projects such as World Book Day, and the Żywiec Group for supporting the Malta International Theater Festival in the western city of Poznań. The Orange Foundation was given its award for helping finance projects such as the Warsaw Uprising Virtual Museum.

The culture ministry's Benefactor of the Year Awards aim to highlight the role of institutions and individuals in supporting cultural life in Poland.
