Eszter_Lelik_car_giveaway

 

 

 

In 2017, as part of a previous ProZ.com membership campaign called The Open Road, the grand prize awarded was a new Nissan Juke. The lucky winner was Eszter Lelik, an English to Hungarian translator based in Hungary. Here you can see Eszter next to her new car. The dog did not come with the car, but we imagine he/she enjoyed the new ride too.

This and other prizes were awarded and announced live via ProZ/TV from the ProZ.com offices in Syracuse, New York. You can see the broadcast below:
