The three-part report produced by Finalframe Content on behalf of N-TV won a Television & Corporate Media Silver Award at the WorldMediaFestivals.


On the occasion of the midterm elections held in the USA last autumn, to produce the reports Navidi did some asking around in her adopted home city, New York, and the surrounding area. Speaking to top executives and decision-makers, as well as to citizens from the fringes of the city, she tried to find out what society thinks of President Trump's policies, what consequences can be expected and which course the United States is currently steering. In November 2018, the resulting three Wie tickt Amerika? programmes attracted an audience of 1.46 million viewers, giving the series a market share of 1.9 per cent.

"Sandra Navidi and the whole team led by Rainer Munz and Finalframe Content did a really terrific job. The reports are personally told, occasionally provocative and always informative. And they clearly highlighted how divided the USA is. It's great to see this exceptional achievement being recognised by a jury as well as by the programme's viewers," says N-TV Editor-in-Chief Sonja Schwetje.

For the past 19 years, the WorldMediaFestivals in Germany's media metropolis, Hamburg, have been handing out awards to outstanding media solutions at the international level. These honours go to audiovisual, print and online content in the areas of information, education and entertainment, focussing in particular on how effectively the specified target group is approached.
