impressions from last year

We've been reflecting on what a great first year we had running the 2015 ADAMI Media Prize. Here's what some of our ADAMI friends and winners had to say about their experience: 

The ADAMI Media Prize brought me great happiness. I will always be grateful for it.
— Giorgi Tskhvediani, ADAMI Media Prize Winner for Non-Fiction 2015
ADAMI is like a big, wide bridge. It connects not only different cultures, but different people as well. ADAMI creates the opportunity to talk to each other, and most of all, to understand.
— Tural Asadov, Azerbaijan TV presenter, Jury member 2015
In our global world, there’s no need for local filmmakers to look overseas for success. You have the ADAMI Media Prize right in front of you. Participating in the ADAMI Media Prize was an invaluable experience for me. I advise people with similar backgrounds to seek this opportunity, and succeed.
— Oktay Namazov, ADAMI Media Prize Winner for Online Videos 2015
ADAMI is a unifying event, that not only brings together people of different cultures and nationalities. It also inspires young filmmakers and journalists to create, to share their thoughts and ideas. Last year surprised me with the diversity of films presented at ADAMI.
— Leila Ismailova, TV presenter, ADAMI Gala 2015 host
