The A special honor from the German Association for Adult Education (DVV) This year goes to artist, comedian, presenter and actress Anke Engelke, whose innovative creativity and versatility has provided premium services to television without being restricted to certain genres or target groups. “Anke Engelke keeps raising the mirror to us with a unique irony. And what we see there isn’t always fun, but it helps us recognize our educational needs,” says DVV President, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. Engelke’s parodies show where we lack enlightenment or where a change of perspective would benefit us. Anyone who recognizes his gaps with a smile and sets out to fill them acts in the spirit of adult education centers.”

In general, it is clear that common law institutions dominate this year as well.
Director Grimm D. In short, Frauke Gerlach says:
“In light of far-reaching processes of social and global change, traumatic crises and the increasing digitization of the audience, the demand for high-quality television programming is increasing.”
In addition, it is important to reach heterogeneous target groups:
And in this respect, the award-winning products in the categories Children, Youth and Entertainment are particularly convincing this time around. They are successful in informing, giving direction and entertaining with objectivity, appreciation, empathy and also witty humor. Reporting and documentaries in the information and culture category, as well as multi-layered material and storytelling in the fiction category, are also of good quality, and the trend is on the rise in this award year.”
The 58th Grimme Award will be presented on August 26 at the Marl City Theater and will be televised by 3sat with a time delay starting at 10:25 PM.
