The "Oscar" of health communication is a Health:Angel

The Health:Angel has been sponsored by the registered association Health Media Award, based in Cologne, since 2018. In a special category (“Honorary Health:Angel”), non-profit organisations or prominent supporters are awarded for their social, media-effective commitment to health communication.

The competition has been held digitally since 2020. The awards are presented in person by the Grand Jury President or his representatives.

ZNS – Hannelore Kohl FOUNDATION

„That we, the Hannelore Kohl Foundation, have been awarded a Health:Angel makes us very proud.“

Melanie Huml

Minister of State for European Affairs and International Affairs

“It is important to me to offer serious topics a professional podium that extends beyond the usual structures.”

University of California San Diego Health System


"For their social commitment (COVID-19) and contribution to the active and personal exchange on digital health between the United States of America and Germany awarded with an Health:Angel."

Dieter Nuhr

Cabaret artist, comedian, author, photographer and television presenter

"It's always nice to be recognized for your health!"

Ronny Zimmermann

DFB ViCE prEsident fOR YOUTH FOOTBALL And Refereeing

“The Health Media Award makes us very happy and confirms the positive response we have received from amateur clubs for the “Draußen muss drin” campaign. At the same time, it is an incentive for us not to let up.”

Sophie Lu-Axelsson

CEO at Swedish Care International

"For the Queen Silvia Nursing Award it's an absolute pleasure to be here."

Viktor Elbling

German Ambassador in Rome (2018 to 2023)

"Without art, everything becomes silent. And we need art, we need music, COVID-19 has taught us that. The 1:1 concerts were coronavirus-safe islands of live music. We were happy that we could enjoy these moments together with the Roman citizens."

Harald Schmidt

German Depression Aid Foundation

“My impression is that the understanding of depression has already grown in recent years. Nevertheless, there is still a lot of need for education. The Health Media Award helps to further publicise our foundation’s work.”

You too can become a Health:Angel!

Agenda 2030

Challenges and trends

Our world is in a state of upheaval. Achievements that were thought to be secure are faltering and progress can quickly turn into regression. It is time for the Health:Angels to act even more decisively! The 2030 Agenda with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals is also realigning the Health Media Award. In the process, health communication will become an indispensable compass for the entire community of nations.
To reflect this development, the international network of award winners, evaluation and content partners, and sponsors will continue to expand in the coming years. Based on fewer but more contemporary categories and the results of 15 years of juror engagement, Health:Angel is traveling back to the future. Instead of public jury sessions or live performances, the competition will be planned and organized digitally or remotely.

The award winners

Since 2008, over 500 Health:Angels have been awarded and over 5,000 applications, proposals or nominations have been reviewed by the Grand Jury
