The award ceremony was held for the tenth time.
For the tenth time now, the Laureus Media Prize was bestowed in honour of good sports journalism, both reporting and journalistic initiatives, to individuals and organisations who have shown outstanding social dedication in the field of sports and made a valuable contribution to the Laureus idea. To mark the anniversary, the award of the major Media Award for social commitment in sport was first held in Berlin on the evening of the BAMBI Awards. So this meant for the city of politics and of media: Media Award meets Media Award. The daily newspaper Mannheimer Morgen was awarded the “Laureus Media Prize 2014: Spirit of Laureus” for its wide-ranging commitment in the category of print media. SPORT1 and focus.de were each awarded the “Spirit of Laureus” in the television and online categories respectively, for exceptional commitment in their reporting on Laureus.
