Jazzjournalismus

German Jazz-Journalism Award

The German Jazz Journalism Award was initiated in 2012 by the Dr. E. A. Langner-Foundation and the organizers of the international Jazz Trade Show in Bremen, called ‘Jazzahead’. This award supports the jazz scene and enhances its presence in the media. It is granted to journalists for their special achievement in the field of jazz music. In 2012 and 2013 the award was presented during a public event at the ‘Jazzahead’ Trade Show in the presence of 500 guests and the Mayor of the Free and Hanseatic City of Bremen. The Dr. E. A. Langner-Foundation sponsors the upcoming 2015 German Jazz-Journalism Prize.
