Best use of design within digital media – be it single visual elements based on proper and creative contemporary style or the visual concept of a platform in general.

The category is for excellent and user-centric publishing products which support the underlying editorial strategy and business approach. Please describe briefly how it works.

Digital Storytelling
This category is for outstanding content which, from an editorial point of view, makes best use of digital characteristic or technical features.

Launch or Relaunch (digital)
Describe how you changed your digital platform and why. Ideally, you add a screenshot of the platform before the relaunch. If changes were made gradually and step by step, please state the period. Achivements such as traffic, conversion etc. can be relevant.
Interactive Story
Digital content which involves the user in a clever way will be awarded in this category. If possible, tell the jury about the performance: traffic, shares, likes a.s.o.

Data Journalism
Digital content based on data and the visualization of data. You may enter single stories or the platform and its underlying data journalism approach as a whole.

Showcast your podcast product in this category. Please describe the podcast’s concept and what makes it special. Please submit only one edition of your podcast per entry.

The jury is looking for stunning video content from your platform. Please pick one example per entry and add some performance-related information such as views, downloads, followers etc.
The category awards the best bulletin formats in terms of contents and presentation. Performance KPI like reach or conversion rate are helpful but not the only criteria.

Business Model
Driving a digital platform’s revenues on the basis of a deliberate, consequent strategy. Please describe the business model and how it interacts with audience and clients.

User Engagement
The category is open for best practise cases of user engagment on digital platforms. Please describe how it works with your platform and add some KPI findings if possible.

The perfect category for submitting a project which is also running in other categories, given that here, beyond journalistic approach, creativity or design itself, especially performance results are valued. Please describe the specific performance criteria and numbers.
The category focusses on tools which support digital publishing products – like Targeting, Analytics, CMS, Payment etc.

Content Marketing (digital)
Outstanding digital media produced by a publisher or consultancy on behalf of a client or by the organization itself. The submission should contain owned media at a high quality level.
