Music often also contributes to the journalistic quality on the Internet. The nominations for the Grimme Online Award 2020 were once again supposed to be presented at the c/o pop Convention. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we had to cancel the c/o pop Convention in April. And so the nomination event of the Grimme Online Award in Cologne had to be cancelled, too. The event will take place online via livestream instead on April, 22nd.
The Grimme Online Award will be presented for the 20th time in summer of 2020 by the Grimme Institute. The Grimme Online Award is a perfect addition to our DIGITAL MUSIC program. Since the beginning of digitalization, music has been a driver of central technological developments and trends on the Internet, which is also reflected in the Grimme Online Award.
