MOSCOW, November 21 (RIA Novosti) - The RIA Novosti news agency has won the Runet 2012 Prize in the “Culture, Media and Telecoms” category.

The prize was awarded for RIA’s multimedia coverage of significant events and the launch of a new version of its website.

“RIA Novosti’s site is just one and a half months old and the Runet prize is very prestigious,” RIA Novosti’s editor-in-chief Svetlana Mironyuk said while accepting the prize.

The agency has drastically redesigned its website, including its configuration and functionalities. Visitors to the ria.ru online resource get access to a variety of formats in news coverage - texts, photos, videos, inforgraphics, schemes, etc.

The contest is organized by the Russian Association of Electronic Media with financial support from the Federal Agency for the Press and Media. The prize has been awarded for the ninth time this year. There were a total of six nominations.

RIA Novosti’s project “Russia For Everyone” has won a Runet 2012 prize in the “.рф” category, a reference to the Cyrillic characters standing for “Russian Federation.”

The project provides information on the culture, traditions, and life of the various ethnicities living in Russia, as well as in neighboring states.

It is available in seven languages: Tajik, Azerbaijani, Dagestani, Avar, Kyrgyz, Chechen and Russian.

Another RIA project, Social Navigator, won the Runet prize in the “Health, Entertainment and Leisure” category.

Another winner was the RIA project “1812: War and Peace. A New Look,” dedicated to the 200th anniversary of Russia’s victory in the 1812 War in the “Science and Education” category.
