GQ launches 2018 GQ Man of the Year vote


TAGS: GQ, time to vote, Man of the Year

Next September, GQ will present the 16th Man of the Year Awards, one of the most desired and respectable prizes.

For the third year in a row, BOSS will be the ceremony’s partner. The long-term collaboration between the brand and the magazine seems only natural as the brand’s impeccable style and attention to details perfectly reflect GQ’s philosophy. Johnnie Walker will be the GQ awards’ partner for the sixth time. The brand with a 200-year-long history is traditionally in charge of the bar based on Johnnie Walker Black Label that brings together craftsmanship and taste traditions from all four regions of Scotland.


GQ has remained true to the venue of its Man of the Year cocktail party. On May 29, the magazine’s friends, nominees and winners of the previous years attended the event at the Imperial Yacht Club at Bersenevskaya Embankment. GQ Editor-in-Chief Igor Garanin reminded the guests that every single vote can determine the outcome. All it takes is to cast your vote at GQ.ru.


Igor Garanin and GQ Publisher Irina Yelizarova announced this year’s nominees in 11 categories, including Actor of the Year, Debut of the Year, Musician of the Year, Film Director of the Year, Businessman of the Year, Producer of the Year, TV Celebrity of the Year, Restaurateur of the Year, Athlete of the Year, Politician of the Year and Author of the Year. They also presented special categories from the project partners. BOSS introduced the Boss of the Year category that will honor the most elegant gentleman. Johnnie Walker will present an award in its special category, Art of Compatibility, to the most progressive team.


Online poll is already open at GQ.ru. Results will be announced at the GQ Man of the Year award ceremony in September and published in the October issue.
