Elvir Laković, also known as Laka, the eccentric singer from Bosnia & Herzegovina, is the winner of the 2008 MTV regional award for best Adria Act.

Loved or hated, Laka certainly made an impression on the Eurovision Song Contest 2008 viewers when he managed not only to qualify to the final but also enter the top ten in the final this year with his song Pokusaj.

Today, it was announced that he is also the winner of the prestigious Best Adria Act award, part of the MTV Europe Awards 2008 specifically for artists from Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Slovenia, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Croatia. The awarding ceremony will take place on 6 November at the Liverpool Echo Arena in the UK.

Special thanks to Djamila N.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
