Externado Professor nominated for prestigious Latin America Award

Carlos Arias, professor of the Master's in Political Communication Program, was nominated for the 2017 Napolitan Victory Awards, the most important awards for political communication and consulting throughout the region.

The Napolitan Victory Awards are sometimes referred to as the Oscars of Communication and Political Marketing. Last year, the company Estrategia & Poder, of which Professor Arias is the general manager, was awarded the statuette in the Media Training category.

This year, the company Estrategia & Poder is nominated in three categories:  Company of the year in Political Marketing and Communication; Political Blog of the year, and Institutional Campaign of the year.

Competing with the most outstanding companies from Mexico, Spain, Ecuador, and Argentina, Estrategia & Poder is the only Colombian company nominated in these three categories.

“For us, being nominated among more than 500 participants, already makes us winners.  We will proudly represent our country and hope to obtain the statuettes in the categories in which we are nominated,” stated Externado Professor Carlos Arias.

The award ceremony will be held in Washington, D.C., September 1, 2017.
