Hamburg, May 2021
Thank you!

Dear WorldMediaFestivals community,

thank you so much for this years experience! We were totally overwhelmed with the vast amount of entries that have reached us despite the current global corona situation. It shows that creativity, teamwork and the ambition to compete on an international scale certainly can not be stopped easily!

It has been a great pleasure to have such a huge range of outstanding creative ideas & craftmanship in media production in the contest. Every single entry is a result of incredibly hard work, and it was an agonising process for the judges to make a selection from the multifaceted scope of entries.

Entering in a media competition is not solely about winning an award, it is also about courage, it is about creating stronger bonds and it is about being a good sport in a competitive world.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank every single entrant of you, who has participated in this competition! Especially, as every entry has filled the festival with life and has contributed to make it a success!

Last but not least, we are also thanking all of our sponsors, supporters, friends and particularly the judges, as the WorldMediaFestivals would not have been possible without any of you.

As we speak, we are already planning the "next round of games" and look absolutely forward to welcoming you when the WorldMediaFestivals open their gates again to announce our "Global Call for Entries 2022".

Thank you and most sincerely,

Sara Chinbuah & the WorldMediaFestivals Team

An Award Ceremony of a different kind



An Award Ceremony of a different kind took place this year for Oliver Goetzl from Gulofilm, Hamburg. For his magnificent film WHITE WOLVES - GHOSTS OF THE ARCTIC, he was awarded the WorldMediaFestivals 2020 Grand Prix. But how to honour him in times of social distancing? Without a stage, without live band, without dinner, without guests, without spotlight, without applause, without the song "Simply the Best". . without everything that usually bring the WorldMediaFestivals to life. . .

A meeting on a wonderful summer day at the banks of the river Elbe, the skyline of Hamburg in the background, chilled champagne, screeching seagulls, sparkling awards in the sun and a lot of good vibes - even with a face mask. The awards were handed over by Sara Chinbuah to the happy Grand-Prix winner Oliver Goetzl. There was a lot of laughing and chatting - and "Simply the Best" was played from the cell phone. Here are the pictures taken of this special moment :-)
