Journalists' Prizes

Journalists' prizes are something like the deep polish on a valuable piece of furniture. They ennoble the material, allow the quality of the work to be shown more clearly, provide the piece of work with an additional gloss - and thus bring joy to everyone who has contributed to its creation.
The newspapers of the M. DuMont Schauberg (MDS) group of companies are regularly one of the party when the important journalists' prizes are awarded in Germany.
