Deutscher Computerspielpreis (DCP)

The Deutscher Computerspielpreis is a prize handed out by Germany’s Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) in cooperation with the German Trade Association of Interactive Entertainment Software (BIU) and the German Game Developers Association (G.A.M.E.). The award ceremony takes place as part of the DGT Deutsche Gamestage. The prize is a joint initiative of the German political and economic sectors and was established jointly by the federal government and these two leading industry associations. The main goal of the award is to promote the development of innovative computer and video games that contain a high level of cultural and educational value. The award’s prize money is financed equally by the BKM, on the one hand, and by the BIU and G.A.M.E. associations on the other. Award recipients are chosen by an independent jury consisting of experts drawn from the fields of science, media education, youth media protection, politics, the press and the games industry. The awards ceremony is held annually and on an alternating basis in Berlin and Munich. In 2012, the ceremony received funding from the Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg. The DGT Deutsche Gamestage were initiated by the Medienboard and consist of the Quo Vadis Developers’ Conference organized by Aruba Events, the Indie Connect Festival A MAZE. and many other game-related events in Berlin.
