FotoTabeathanks to the Otto Sprenger foundation, we can award grants to each one of our finalists: €5.000 for the first place, €2.000 for the second and €1.000 each for the third to fifth place.

Today, we are happy to announce the winners of the 3rd to 5th price:


3rd Place: Gayatri Parameswaran (India) & Felix Gaedtke (Germany)

4th Place: Peter Dörrie (Germany), Simon Allison (South Africa) & Jean-Louis Gondamoyen (Central African Republic)

5th Place: Dagmar Gester (Germany) & Diana Ivanova (Bulgaria)

Congratulations to all teams, we truly believe that these stories are amazing examples of the power of cross-border-collaborations in journalism. We would like to portray the journalists and share their wonderful ideas with the Hostwriter community as it seems a shame that only us can learn about them.

Your Hostwriter Team
Felix, Kate, Sandra, Tabea & Tamara
