And the 2014 Public Eye Awards go to...

Over 280'000 people have cast their vote and we have a clear winner: This year’s People’s Award goes to Gazprom. The winner of the Jury Award is Gap.

Between 26 November 2013 and 22 January 2014 over 280’000 people voted for their favorite in the race for the renowned award of shame, the Public Eye People’s Award. We would like to say thanks to everyone who voted and all of you who spread the word about the Public Eye.

The company that received the most votes by 22 January has the dubious honor of calling themselves the winner of the 2014 People’s Award. An independent jury awarded the other award of shame, the Public Eye Jury Award, to Gap.
