Award for “Humboldt today” anniversary site – video campaign continues

For its website commemorating the 250th anniversary of Alexander von Humboldt’s birth, the Humboldt Foundation has been granted the 2019 Best of Content Marketing Award. The interactive campaign “For me, Humboldt today means …” will continue until the end of the year.

A jury of 200 experts selected this year’s gold award winners from nearly 700 corporate publications. The website www.humboldt-heute.de in the category “Specials Digital” was chosen for the award ahead of four other shortlisted nominees. In addition to storytelling and design, the jury's statement particularly praised the participative character of the website.

Video messages addressing the question as to what Humboldt means to us today can be uploaded to the site. Numerous statements by researchers, friends of the Foundation, journalists and politicians – including German Chancellor Angela Merkel – are already online. In addition, you can find articles on Alexander von Humboldt, his life and impact right up to the present day as well as information on events and exhibitions.
