by Morten Alfred Høirup has received two important communication awards this autumn, two awards that we are very proud of.

First we got the Tempis OOaward (Acces) at's support party on 28 September, and then we got Folk Danmark and IFPI's 'Danish Folk Broadcaster of the Year' at the big gala party on 10 November – both parties were also held at ALICE on Nørrebro in Copenhagen.

What the two awards have in common is that we get them for our work with public service:

"The broadcaster of the year holds the bar high and delivers public service of very high quality in an area where other media fail miserably." DMA Folk/World 2019 writes in the motivation, or as OOaward's jury puts it:

" must be praised because they have taken on a public service responsibility at a time when other public service providers have not given folk music the attention it deserves."

It is therefore about public service in a neglected but at the same time thriving area.

As an editor at and chairman of the association Mediehaven, which is behind's daily work, I am just super proud of the awards, and I know that both myself and all my partners have high ambitions for what we want and also want to be able to on that front in the coming years.

Thanks for the prices, we will do what we can to live up to them!
