This year, the number of contender’s bi-communal teams for the awards doubled reaching 215, which is a new participation record for Stelios Awards. More than 1800 people have joined the group ‘Stelios Cyprus Bi-Communal Awards 2016’ on Facebook, which was created by the Stelios Philanthropic Foundation to promote bi-communal cooperation. The excellent communication and publicity that the Awards contest received through the Facebook platform, engaging participants through the Stelios Philanthropic Foundation page, Stelios Cyprus Bi-Communal Awards 2016, giving more impetus to Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots for networking and developing partnerships, reinforced even more the climate of understanding and trust and the formation of cooperatives.
