Contest of Creative Minds

Young people are called to apply for the Meduc Award until August 1

Stuttgart (Germany), July 24, 2013 – The Meduc Award distinguishes the next generation of creatives. The prize is awarded in the categories journalism, print, music, film and multimedia by a renowned jury from the media industry. Among these is Oliver Hahr who is looking for the best story-tellers.

Consuming is in, but what about being creative? The Meduc Award fosters young media talents and motivates them to become active with their own projects. Students and apprentices until one year after their graduation are invited to contribute. The participation is free of charge; themes can be selected freely. Attractive prizes like software-packages, advanced training or internships can be won.

Host of the award is the media akademie e.V. under the direction of Prof. Dr. Tamara Huhle and Jörg Schmidt from the Academy of media in Stuttgart. “With this award we want to acknowledge ideas, support young talents in the creative industry and offer them a platform for contacts and networks,” says Jörg Schmidt. The association has been rewarding the prize since 2002.  The ceremony traditionally takes place in autumn.

Oliver Hahr, Director of Consulting and Public Relations at oha communication is a juror in the category journalism this year. Here, good story-tellers are pointed out that have handed in notable works in print or audiovisual media. “Good journalism surprises and makes curious. It explains and provides a deeper understanding that enables new action”, says Oliver Hahr who is looking forward to screening the submitted works.”
