ITOPF Wins Gold Stevie® Award

ITOPF was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the 11th Annual International Business AwardsSM.

It received the Award in the "training" category for its seven part film series "Response to Marine Oil Spills."

This series promotes good practice and raises awareness of some of the issues involved in oil spill response. The films are freely available to view online or can be purchased as a single DVD from ITOPF's website.

The Stevie Awards were created in 2002 to honour and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organisations and working professionals worldwide.

Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 250 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from May to early August.

ITOPF Managing Director, Dr Karen Purnell, said "Having already won the top three prizes at the International Oil Spill Conference Film Festival in the USA, we are delighted that the films have now received accolades beyond our own industry sector. This Award is welcome confirmation that the films are comprehensible and engaging and hit the right notes as a training resource".

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for "crowned," the awards will be presented to winners at a gala awards banquet at the Westin Paris - Vendome Hotel in Paris, France on 10 October.

"We congratulate all of the Stevie winners in this year's IBAs," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. "The quality of entries we receive improves every year. This year's judges were rewarded with the opportunity to review more than 3,500 stories of business achievement and innovation from around the world. We look forward to celebrating the winners' achievements in Paris on 10 October."
