Sensei Brand Award: Brands Which Inspire, Guide and Mentor

LONDON and MOSCOW, November 11, 2010 - Popsop.com, the popular brand magazine online with 100,000 reader
audience, has announced the launch of its new own branded project Sensei
Award, which celebrates the new approach to awarding global brands for
their certain mentorship activities.

Since August 2010 Popsop has been publishing the voting results for the
Sensei Brand Award 2011 on a monthly basis. The total score by category as of
the current date can be seen daily here:
popsop.com/category/sba-rating. As planned, the final results of the
rating campaign will be announced in 12 months, and in August 2011 we'll
define 3 brand Senseis and the Best of Show Sensei.

As a part of SBA'11 our expert juries vote for the best brand campaigns
in 2010 across 3 areas of social life, which form 3 award criteria:

    - ECO (recycling, environmental protection, green packaging, healthy
      lifestyle etc.).

    - FUN (youth and family values, person and society, love and affection,
      relationships and friendship etc.).

    - MIND (innovations, science, modern arts, high tech, big ideas etc.).

The rating is based upon the judges' votes given to the brand campaigns
and updated each month.

Now we have 23 international judges on the panel for SBA'11 rating

    * Marcus Hewitt - Chief Creative Officer, Dragon Rouge, New York
