Karakaya Talks is nominated for the Grimme Online Award 2023



Landecker Fellow Esra Karakaya is among the 28 nominees for the prestigious Grimme Online Award 2023.

According to the Director of the Grimme Insitute Frauke Gerlach, “the nominees in 2023 impress with their range of topics, innovative implementations and creative ways of presenting.

Esra was nominated in the “Information” category with her TikTok channel titled Karakaya Talks. “With a diverse team, she often picks up topics that would quickly be overlooked in traditionally staffed editorial offices,” reported the Rheinische Post.

The prizes will be awarded on June 15th in the City of Cologne. Esra, good luck!
