More than a hundred prizes have been awarded during the 2019 World Countries Awards, the most prestigious international award ceremony in the world. A night to remember for the people of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands as they swept nearly all the awards available.
Historic Win For South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands
The South Georgian team could hardly hide its excitement as the celebrations went on. “Are we surprised? Not really”, South Georgian Team leader told the journalist, speaking just after receiving the award for Most Humble People In The World.
