One more week!
Preliminary results are in for the Giant Panda Global Awards 2017
For a good three weeks, panda fans all over the world have been voting for their top picks in the annual Giant Panda Global Awards. Nominees for 2017 include Zoo Berlin for the very first time – in no less than five of the twelve categories!
Preliminary results were published at the end of last week, fuelling even more speculation. They show that Zoo Berlin has already made it into the top three in four of its five nominated categories:
- Second place in the category Panda Moment of the Year
- Second place in the category Favorite Panda Outside of China
- Third place in the category Most Beautiful Panda Zoo Enclosure
- Third place in Panda Educational Entertainment of the Year
- Fifth place in Human Panda Personality of 2017
Hopes are high that we will be able to defend our position or perhaps climb even higher in the rankings. Zoo Berlin is therefore calling on all panda fans to cast their votes by 21 January 2018 via the following link:

Zoo and Tierpark Director Dr Andreas Knieriem is very pleased with the results so far: “I am surprised and proud to see how well we are already doing in all five categories. I would like to say a big thank you to all those who have supported us so far.” Voting closes in a little over a week, and on 8 February Zoo Berlin will welcome international guests to the grand award ceremony.
