Nominations for the Silver Horse
Over 40 journalists and onliners, social media stars and media companies have submitted entries – three of them were now nominated for “The Silver Horse”. The equestrian sport online and social media award.
The Silver Horse was the most famous media prize in the areas of print, TV and radio for 30 years. For the past four years it has been paying tribute to the changing media landscape and is conferred as an “online and social media award”.

These included both blogs and social media platforms as well as classic media, which have mastered the transformation into the digital world in totally different ways.
The following were nominated (in alphabetical order):
Maren Höfle for her report “Alwin Schockemöhle – the equestrian legend turns 85” in the ARD media library
Semmieke Rothenberger for the overall concept of her Instagram account
