One of the world’s major festivals in journalism, cinema and promotion, the award ceremony opened in Las Vegas.
RT won the Gold World Medal in the Human Concerns category among Documentary/Information Programme Productions for its Blood and Honor film, shot by RT’s Leonid Kanfer and Pavel Baidikov. The documentary tells about the importance of an ancient blood feud practice in the Caucasus mountains.
