Tamedia Scholarship Award
Outstanding articles, features or series should rewarded. This is why Publisher and Chairman of the Board of Directors Pietro Supino initiated the Tamedia Scholarship Award in the year 2008. Normally, five journalists – one person or a team – shall be rewarded with the scholarship award each year.
The members of the committee of the Tamedia Publicist Conference, in which all editors-in-chief and all editorial managers of all media of Tamedia are involved, act as jury. Nominees are winners of established and well-known media or journalist awards, the editors-in-chief and editorial managers are yet invited to submit additional proposals for nomination.
Although the scholarship is handled according to established guidelines, it does not follow a strict procedure but does focus on the individual needs of the winners. All winners are therefore invited to submit to the jury proposals in which way their projects could be supported best. The choice is a paid leave of up to two months, a specific further training or, for a specific time, a job placement at a partner media corporation within Switzerland or abroad.
