Freiburg, 31.07.2023 (PresseBox) - On October 5, 2023, the time has come again: the Prize for Pop Culture will once again be awarded to modern and popular musicians who have made outstanding achievements in the German pop culture scene over the past year. It was possible to be nominated for the jury prize until June 10.

The expert jury recently drew up a shortlist from which the 800 or so members of the association will select the winners by voting until July 31, 2023. The prize is awarded in 11 categories, including prizes for the most promising newcomer and the most impressive live show.

To get into the right mood, an election party with around 200 guests and two live acts was held on 17 July at Berlin's "Club the Reed" on Alexanderplatz. The awards gala on October 5 will take place at the Theater des Westens with 1,100 guests from the German music and creative industries.

The non-profit association for the promotion of pop culture has set itself the task of helping young talents on the market to gain more attention and to promote them. The special feature of the award for pop culture is that winning is possible even without commercial success or connections in the music industry - only the artistic achievement should count. Of course, this is only possible thanks to the support of the association's numerous partners, such as Initiative Musik, GVL, Youtube Music, Universal Music, Sony Music, BMG, Edel, Radioeins, Radio Fritz, Diffus Magazin and Reservix.
