To bring the topic of hearing loss to the forefront, Hear the World enlisted the help of celebrity photographer and musician Bryan Adams, to create a one-of-a-kind photography exhibition, along with an interactive Web site, local educational events around Better Hearing and Speech month, a media campaign for free hearing screenings and a HEAR THE WORLD magazine - reaching more than 600 million people across the globe.

"The Hear the World initiative has been made possible through the work of teams all around the world who are dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of hearing," said Vanessa Erhard-Blattmann, Phonak Corporate Marketing Director responsible for Hear the World. "We are very proud to be the recipients of this very prestigious award that speaks to both the hard work of the global Phonak team and our continued commitment to making a difference in the lives of those living with hearing loss."

Phonak and Hear the World were also named finalists in two related categories: Communications Campaign of the Year in Europe and Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year in Europe.

Nicknamed the Stevie® for the Greek word "crowned," the International Business Awards are the only global, all-encompassing business awards program honoring great performances in business. International Stevie Award winners were selected from more than 1,700 entries received from organizations and individuals in more than 30 countries.
