Participation in the Slovak competition called Corporate Medium of the Year 2015 was again a success for U. S. Steel Košice. The second place prize was awarded to Oceľ východu in the Corporate Newspaper Category, as was also the case of the website www.usske.sk, which competed for the first time in the Websites and Intranet Category.
According to jury member Monika Kozelová from the Corporate Medium Club, 288 different media were registered for the 13th edition of the Competition, from which 150 were selected to compete for the top awards. Fifty-eight large companies, government bodies, and non-governmental organizations could verify the quality of their work. The External Communication Category attracted the greatest interest. "This year we recorded significant development in printed media in spite of the fact that we still observe their general decrease in the mainstream," said M. Kozelová.
The jury jointly assessed entries in 13 categories. Nine special prizes were awarded. The results of the Competition were announced in the Mirror Hall of the Primatial Palace in Bratislava on May 13, 2016.

This year it shared second place with HeinekenNovinky, Heineken Slovakia’s corporate newspaper. The corporate newspaper of the National Highways Company (called Výtlk, meaning Pothole) was awarded the first place prize and "Novinky písané ceruzkou" of the West Slovakian Energy Corporation took the third place prize.
