De Limburger European newspaper of the year
De Limburger has been chosen “European Newspaper of the Year”. An international jury of 15 members has awarded the newspaper the European Newspaper Award in the regional newspaper category for the new layout.
The jury states that De Limburger “has a very modern, visually emphatic front page. New layout variants are always selected. In that way an impression of sameness is avoided.” The jury also praised the creativity of how Limburger Magazine is being made, the magazine which is included in the Saturday edition.
Editor-in-chief Roy op het Veld sees the award as recognition “for the fact that we surprise our readers daily, not just with content but also with lay-out”.
The jury had to choose from 185 newspapers from 27 countries. The award ceremony will take place next year in Vienna. The Limburger was previously awarded a price in 1999.
