On 8 May 2019, during an awards ceremony which was held at the Filoxenia Conference Centre in Nicosia, Polydorou Design proudly received the Cyprus Tourism Gold Award 2019 in the category of ‘News Reports / Journalism, Promoting Cyprus as a unique destination’.
The Cyprus Tourism Awards – the first of what is set to be an annual event – were launched andorganised by the DIAS Media Group and Sigma Television, in cooperation with Boussias Communications and with the support of the Ministry of Tourism, the Association of Tourism Businesses, and the Cyprus Hotels Association, and brought together all the players in the tourism industry of Cyprus.
Polydorou Design earned Gold in recognition of its contribution to the industry, as exemplified in its publication of ‘Four Seasons Portrait’, a bespoke in-house magazine for the Four Seasons hotel in Limassol.
Now in its 31st issue, Portrait has been in circulation for 16 years, delivering unparalleled editorial and visual content. Apart from serving as a channel of communication between the hotel and its guests, friends and associates, Portrait has been pivotal in keeping the island’s heritage alive in print. The magazine’s original and insightful content often uncovered ‘forgotten’ traditional arts and crafts, effectively compiling an archive of folkloric crafts and pastimes, people and places.
Commenting on the award, Eleni Polydorou said: “Portrait is the product of outstanding teamwork across the board, from our designers to our writers, editors, photographers and printers, in close cooperation with the management and staff of the Four Seasons Hotel and with the invaluable support of our advertisers. Every issue of Portrait gives us another opportunity to put the spotlight on the wonders and beauty of Cyprus, the island we love.”
