DWA FÖRDERPREIS

This year, for the first time in the five-year history of this award, the German advertising film academy DWA awarded two directing ideas, which won the first prize, each with a production budget of 20,000 euros and a media budget of 15,000 euros.

The jury, consisting of the creative Tobias Grimm from BBDO Berlin, director Jan Bonny, producer Nils Schwemer from Iconoclast Berlin and postproducer Claudia Mina from Pirates'n'Paradise, selected the directing ideas "The future belongs to everyone" (for Opel Insignia) by Falk Poetz and "I am an Ultra" (for Always Ultra) by Miguel Schmid & Magali Herzog to the winners. The three young talents now have five months to implement their concepts. At Deutscher Werbefilmpreis 2018, the films are shown for the first time publicly.
