The WDR3 Jazz Festival in February 2013 has an award ceremony. The next edition features a new category of award, for the best contribution to jazz radio programming in the German-speaking countries, with a total prize value of EUR 5,000. I was a member of the jury. The winner was a programme made by Karsten Mützelfeldt report for DLF, about the Austrian Inntoene Festival.
We also chose a runner-up, a programme by young reporter Nabil Atassi for NDR on the scene in London, broadcast in January 2012, and focused on the 2011 London Jazz Festival. NDR in Hamburg have just made the programme available to listen online HERE (for German -speakers).
