Mare took the first prize in the investigative journalism category, for an article on smart cameras at building entrances and lecture halls. HanzeMag finished in first place in the video/podcast category, for their documentary about three international students and their desperate search for accommodation. Mare also won the first prize in the columns category, with a contribution by editor-in-chief Frank Provoost, who criticised how Leiden University covers up fraud and leaves whistleblowers out in the cold (in Dutch).
