I am not sure how to formulate correctly the phrase 'a winner that took the first place in the contest'. Could you propose any idiomatic phrases? My try is below:
The corporation is a gold winner in the contest 'Brand - 2014'.
The corporation was awarded with a "golden" prize in the contest 'Brand -2014'.
The corporation is recognized [as] a gold winner in the contest 'Brand - 2014'.
If they are ok, I will be glad to learn about that.
The addition to the text
I have no idea whether or not the prize is made of gold. I even don't know how the prize looks like.
The second addition to the text:
In my language and culture, a person or an organization, that took the first place, is named figuratively a 'golden winner'. I am not sure how to convey this meaning in English without mentioning the prize. The prize should not be mentioned at all in the situation that I described.
