The Icelanders can be proud of their country as it has been voted Best Country in the World last night (Thursday May, 23) during the annual WCA ceremony. The Icelandic people were also voted Nicest people on the planet.
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 Iceland as they swept nearly all the awards available.
Historic Win For Iceland
The Icelandic team could hardly hide its excitement as the celebrations went on. “Are we surprised? Not really”, Icelandic Team leader told the journalist, speaking just after receiving the award for Most Humble People In The World.
It turns out that due to a tiny logistical concern, only votes from the Icelandic judges has been counted. However, Icelandic organizers emphasized that the issue could not have had any impact on the final outcome.
