Berlin, 15.12.2021 – Last Wednesday, the German Marketing Association (Deutscher Marketing Verband e.V.) recognized top achievements in the marketing industry for the 48th time. The Berlin-based start-up MyPostcard succeeded in placing among the 10 finalists of this year.
Out of around 80 impressive applications, MyPostcard reached the final round of the prestigious marketing prize, which has been awarded since 1973. Alongside the postcard app, the 10 finalists included a variety of top-class companies such as Aldi Süd, BioNTech and RTL. A 24-member jury unanimously voted HelloFresh as this year’s winner of the German Marketing Award. At the same time, a focus on sustainable growth and the idea of “marketing made in Germany”, as well as passion and love for the product offered, and excellent internal organizational design were highlighted by the jury as unifying elements of this year’s finalists.
“All the companies that presented today have solved this brilliantly. There was a lot of discussion on the panel, and we were deeply impressed by the passion shown, the stringent and consistent business processes from strategy to execution, as well as the takeaway from each organization. Great cases were submitted. Many thanks to all the entrants and the entire jury for all the brain power,” said Dr. Ralf E. Strauss, jury chairman and president of the German Marketing Association, summing up the day.
“We are incredibly proud to have received this major recognition for our marketing efforts. To be named alongside these outstanding concepts is an enormous incentive and motivating factor for my team and me. To achieve recognition at this prestigious level is confirmation for us that the passion, heart and soul that goes into our work is being seen and rewarded,” says Oliver Kray, CEO of MyPostcard, expressing his thanks.
