Amazing Facts: Journalism + Konrad Adenauer = Prizes

Looking back to this request by omc, sometimes things make sense in various ways. The post, his comment was attached to, combined politics and quality journalism.

The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, a charitable trust over here named after Germany’s first chancellor, presents a prize for local journalism every year. 2010’s winners come from various parts of the country and highlight various topics.

The Weser-Kurier, a newspaper based in Bremen, won the first prize for their reports about “Erste Hilfe im Alltag (First aid in daily life)”. A recent article of the series is about volunteers who work with and for old people in their community.

The Morgenpost from Berlin came in on spot number two, for a series about the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

The best article about democracy was published by the Braunschweiger Zeitung. It mentioned the 60 years history of German Grundgesetz (Constitution).

Okay. And now, the weather forecast…

  1. Cool information. Guess the old chancellor created a useful trust. I think it’s a good idea to ask for quality journalism on a local level as well.
