We’re happy to have won the title “Science Journalists of the Year” by Medium Magazin for founding RiffReporter!
The jury’s statement:
Tanja Krämer/Christian Schwägerl, RiffReporter
“What Christian Schwägerl and Tanja Krämer have created with RiffReporter is unparalleled: a cooperative with a platform for science journalists. So that they can network, initiate new projects together, as well as advice and start-up support. Above all, the project embodies the impetus to bring the evidence-based core of journalism to the fore – in times in which “postfactual” trends are becoming stronger”.
Editorial by Annette Milz, Editor-in-Chief:
A wish for 2018: More alpha journalism than alpha males.
On a red background, the writing “Alpha” is clearly visible on the website of the RiffReporter. It should be the word 2018 for the industry. The RiffReporter – above all founder Tanja Krämer and Christian Schwägerl – have dared to found their own company.
“At the ,Riff we work together to develop exciting, well-founded new offers on important future topics from science, culture, society, technology and the environment directly for you. Our cooperative is not a publishing house, but has the task of supporting the authors in setting up independent projects”. Bravo! To this end, the jury of the “Journalists of the Year 2017” also awarded her first place in the category of science journalism.
A symbolic coincidence that the two reef founders are a mixed double: This year’s “Journalist of the Year” elections were held on an almost equal footing in all categories. For the first time there are at least as many female journalists as male colleagues at the top, even a little more.” (…)
