Journalism Prize kumU

Journalism Prize kumU

The Association of Capital Market-Oriented Small- and Medium-Sized Enterprises e.V. (Capital Market SME) awards the annual kumU journalism prize. The association is particularly committed to improving the framework conditions for SMEs in capital market financing. An active, diverse media landscape and the visibility of companies' concerns in the public eye is an important part of a functioning financing landscape, especially for SMEs.

The Capital Market SME is therefore particularly keen to ensure that reports on capital market-oriented SMEs are written with a high level of journalistic and professional expertise. The prize is awarded to journalists who deal intensively with the topic of SMEs and the capital market in their articles and who convey this in an outstandingly clear manner and present interrelationships transparently. The articles should demonstrate a high degree of both capital market and didactic journalistic expertise. In particular, the prize is awarded to articles that link the SME sector and the capital market in an explanatory manner, also using examples.
