CIVIS Media Prize 2019 | Invitation TOM BUHROW

Dear ladies and gentlemen!

You are cordially invited to the award ceremony and TV gala for the European CIVIS Media Prize for Integration and Cultural Diversity – on 23 May 2019 at 6.00 pm at the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin. 2019 we are once again celebrating outstanding radio, film, TV and internet programmes that promote a peaceful social coexistence within the multicultural immigration society we have in Europe. Included are the CIVIS CINEMA as audience award and the CIVIS SPECIAL “Football + Integration”.

The patrons of the CIVIS Media Prize 2019 are the President of Germany, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the President of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, the German Minister of Foreign Affairs, Heiko Maas. I would like to thank all the participants of the 767 programmes from 22 EU member states and Switzerland who entered this year’s Europe-wide competition. This impressive number underlines the significance and European dimension of our CIVIS Media Prize.

Following the award ceremony, we would like to invite everyone to an evening reception with live music at Café Einstein Stammhaus on Kurfürstenstraße. A shuttle service is in place. I am looking forward to welcoming you as a guest to the award ceremony for the European CIVIS Media Prize in Berlin!
