The Goldene Kamera

The Goldene Kamera (English: Golden Camera) is an annual German film and television award, awarded by the television magazine HÖRZU. The gold-plated silver award model was created by Berlin artist Wolfram Beck. It is 25 centimeters (approximately 10 inches) high and weighs around 900 grams.[1]

The award was first presented in 1966 as a strictly German television award.[2] Since 1987, it has also been awarded to international stars. In 1995, the categories expanded to more public interests, such as pop groups and organizations, for example Greenpeace.[citation needed] The award show (Verleihung der Goldenen Kamera) is usually held in early February in Berlin, but has also taken place in Hamburg five times, and once in Dortmund.[citation needed]

Awards categories

The official name of the award for the Best Newcomer Actor/Actress is the Lilli-Palmer-und-Curd-Jürgens-Gedächtniskamera (English: Lilli Palmer and Curd Jürgens Memorial Camera). This category also includes a monetary prize of 20,000 euros.[citation needed]
