The Metropolitan Award 2020.

With the award, the Hamburg Metropolitan Region would like to honor people, associations, foundations and companies with a special commitment to the region.

UMSATZSCHMIEDE is co-initiator and silver sponsor of the Awards.


Our goal is to work together for the Hamburg Metropolitan Region and to intensify the feeling of togetherness.


"As a co-initiator and member of the corporate advisory board, I am convinced that the metropolitan helps us to more consciously recognize the opportunities of digitization across national borders and to work together more effectively to secure the economic growth of our metropolitan region in the long term."

UMSATZSCHMIEDE is pleased to have supported the Metropolitan Award as a driver, supporter and sponsor right from the start. The intention was and still is to make the metropolitan region tangible for the people in our region. Also this year we are happy to donate a strategy workshop shop to the winner.


The Metropolitan Award was launched last year to make cohesion in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region visible and to strengthen it. With this award, the Hamburg Metropolitan Region would like to once again honor people, associations, foundations and companies with a special commitment to the region. Cross-national stories of extraordinary people, ideas and deeds should be brought to light.


The participants and award winners were very good examples of the wealth of ideas and helpfulness in and around Hamburg. We can be proud of our region, because it offers us all a high-quality economic future, as well as many personal opportunities.


In 2020, the opening event with the call for applications for the Metropolitan Award will continue at the end of March.


The nomination phase takes place between March 24 and May 8. Write the dates large in your calendar. After the nomination phase, our renowned jury will select the 15 final nominees from all submissions. On this basis, the online voting will decide on the winners of the Metropolitan Awards 2020.

The jury included:


  • Michael Stich, tennis Olympic champion, founder and entrepreneur

  • Andreas Rieckhof, State Councilor for the Authority for Economy, Transport and Innovation, Chairman of the Regional Council of the Hamburg Metropolitan Region

  • Kerstin Weiss, District Administrator of the District of Northwest Mecklenburg, Deputy Chairwoman of the Regional Council of the Hamburg Metropolitan Region

Categories for the 2020 nominations:

  • Companies

  • Societies

  • Foundations

  • People from the region


A prominent jury then selects five nominees in each category who have made a strong contribution to the region through ideas and actions. The population then decides on their three favorites between June 16 and July 30. On September 1, the Metropolitan Award will be presented at a gala in the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie. In addition to the award, cash prizes of 2,500 euros each are awarded in the categories "People from the Region" and "Associations and Foundations" to support their own project.
