The five-member jury recognizes Nadine Wüthrich's contemporary and courageous commitment to digital and hybrid publishing. In her examination of the participation of authors, readers, and other user groups in collaborative publishing processes, she explores questions of generic design, economy of effort, access, and availability. In particular, Wüthrich's thoughtful use of a wide variety of materials, ranging from annotated source texts to scholarly papers to design samples of Montessori school buildings in the "global south," convinced the jury that she was worthy of support. Wüthrich's solid and straightforward presentation of this content shows the potential to provide innovative impulses in the field of Digital Humanities.
