Starting up: The DAME 2022 Data Protection Media Award

Aug 9, 2022

The competition initiated by the Professional Association of Data Protection Officers in Germany (BvD) is entering its sixth round. Media professionals and creative minds can submit their contributions on the topic of data privacy from now until December 5.

The application phase for the Data Privacy Media Award – DAME for short – 2022 has begun. Film and media professionals, YouTubers, journalists, associations and initiatives can now apply for the award, which is endowed with 3,000 euros. Creative submissions that explain the important topic of data protection in a clear and understandable way will be honored. Contest submissions are possible until December 5, 2022, 12 noon. Interested parties can obtain the application documents at

The established jury of data protection experts and media representatives will evaluate the entries for technical presentation, comprehensibility, target group-specific appeal and creativity. Also on the jury will be director Hans Block, representing the Laocoon Group – the winners of the DAME 2021. Last year, student Eric Hohenadel, who acted for the first time as a youth juror and for the EU’s klicksafe initiative, will once again focus on the entries from the younger target group this year.

The award ceremony for the DAME 2022 Data Privacy Media Prize will again take place as a festive evening event in Berlin on May 9, 2023.

The annual Data Privacy Media Award DAME is a project of “privacy4people,” the non-profit limited liability company of the BvD. The prize is sponsored by the DATEV-Stiftung Zukunft. The Stiftung Datenschutz and the Deutscher Spendenrat sponsor the print prize. The EU initiative klicksafe is the media partner.
