Every report had a section with a tip on where one can get a profession.

Tatiana Sergeeva, news-writer of “Bereznikovskiy rabochiy” (“Berezniki worker”), the contest winner:

- Reader is always interested in a person’s story. And a person living on the neighboring street, working in the industrial company is not of less interest and, sometimes, even more than cloying celebrity and threadbare “media persons”. I interviewed and wrote short stories and essays about different people: entertainers and stage stars, making frequent appearances in glamourous magazines, about politicians, deputies and officials, teachers, doctors, workers and farmers. They are all quite alike with the only difference that some are always in the public eye and the others are not eager to get into the spotlight. As a matter of fact, the blue collar workers, sometimes dubbed as “drudges are the very creators at whose expense the whole society lives.

Grigoriy Skvortsov, blogger and photographer, has become the laureate for industrial photo-reports series of Perm and Perm Region companies (including JSC “UEC-Perm Engines” casting shop).  His exclusive photos shot from the roofs of high-rise buildings  and TV towers often appear on well-known Perm web sites.

Olga Krasavina, HR Director of JSC “UEC-Perm Engines”:

- I should note the diversity of subjects which identifies this year reports presented on the contest. More columns focused on the blue collar trades have appeared. Especially it concerns Berezniki editions. “Bereznikovskay nedelya” (“Berezniki week”) is carrying out “Promploschadka”(“Industrial platform”), the project in which reporters write about workers.

I want to address to all newspapers and encourage writing as frequently as possible about industrial companies of the city and region, about those who drives the economy of our region – simple workers. “UEC-Perm Engines” is always open for communication.
