By | June 6, 2022

03.06.2022 – Cologne (ots) | The winners of the European CIVIS Media Prize for Integration and Cultural Diversity 2022 have been announced: The main prize of 15,000 euros, the CIVIS TOP AWARD, goes to the documentary film Schwarze Adler (Black Eagles) (Amazon Prime Video | BROADVIEW | ZDF), by author and director Torsten Körner. The film tells the story of social prejudice and hostility against black footballers. It is also the winner of the CIVIS VIDEO AWARD in the information category. The jury of the CIVIS Media Prize praised Torsten Körner’s documentary as “emotionally moving, journalistically and artistically to the point – the plight of these eagles in the German national jersey gets under your skin.”

The VIDEO AWARD in the entertainment category goes to Paul Mommertz und Magnus Vattrodt, authors of The Wannsee Conference (ZDF | Constantin Television).

Fitore Muzaqi, Henrik Schütz and Stefanie Vollmann come top in the VIDEO AWARD/Social Media Formats category with My scar: Martin was a prisoner in a Syrian torture prison (WDR COSMO | bildband Film & Fernsehproduktion).

The CIVIS AUDIO AWARD in the long programme category goes to Sebastian Friedrich for The last day. The assassination attempt in Hanau (Deutschlandradio | Deutschlandfunk Kultur | WDR | NDR).

The competition in the short programme category is won by Alexander Moritz with Information in the morning: Saxony government coalition at loggerheads over deportation of well-integrated Georgian families (Deutschlandradio | Deutschlandfunk).

The CIVIS AUDIO AWARD Podcast was decided by public voting and goes to authors Fabian Grieger and Jonas Seufert, for Two-Thirds FM – Season 1 Is there friendship in prison? Episode 4.
