Egon Erwin Kisch Prize

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Egon Erwin Kisch Prize was donated in 1977 by Henri Nannen , the founder of Stern magazine . The prize was intended to promote the journalistic quality of reports in the German-language press (especially in the print media). The selection was made in accordance with the claim “Write that down, Kisch!” Formulated by Egon Erwin Kisch and quoted in the preamble of the statutes .

In 2005 the prize was added to the reportage category of the newly created Henri Nannen Prize .

Development for the Henri Nannen Prize

In the age of media diversity and globalization , print journalism has faced new tasks that can no longer be portrayed with classic reportage alone, but are just as important and worthy of prizes. In the spirit of Henri Nannen, who valued reportage in words and pictures as the supreme discipline of journalism, the Egon Erwin Kisch Prize remains as a category of the newly created Henri Nannen Prize - supplemented by other categories. In 2005, the Egon Erwin Kisch Prize was awarded for the first time as a category of the Henri Nannen Prize.
