Data Protection Media Award DAME 2022

The competition initiated by the Professional Association of Data Protection Officers in Germany (BvD) is entering its sixth round. Media professionals and creatives had until December 5 to submit their contributions on the topic of data privacy. The jury will meet in early March. The nominees will then be announced.

The annual Data Privacy Media Award honors the work of creative and media professionals who communicate the topic of data privacy or aspects of it in a clear and understandable way and thus make a contribution to the secure handling of personal data.

Are you a film and media maker, journalist, creative person from a (youth) organization, association or initiative and have you been involved in a media contribution that deals with the topic of data protection? Whether long or short film, report, print or podcast, song, media platform, video clip or animation contribution – every contribution has the chance to win the 3,000 euro award.

“With the DAME, we want to promote contributions that make data protection more tangible, so that the topic is taken for granted in everyday life and personal data is handled with care.” Thomas Spaeing, Chairman of the Board of the BvD

The Data Protection Media Award was initiated in 2017 by the Professional Association of Data Protection Officers in Germany (BvD) e.V. and has been continued by the non-profit GmbH privacy4people since 2020. Since November 2018, the award has been sponsored by the DATEV Foundation for the Future, and the EU initiative klicksafe is a cooperation partner.
