Linguistically and technically, all the interviews were of a very high quality, at least in the opinion of Claus Sixt, who organized the competition. Homosexuality, unemployment, flight, homelessness, all these subjects were deepened on the basis of individual fates. Impressing images were often: Oussama awakens a homeless woman who tells her fate. Osama struggles with death in the sea and sees terrible things. Emna's mother collects rainwater.
Finally the decisive criterion for the two first places was: "Are opportunities created?"
Young people can engage themselves in parties. Often this is difficult, especially in competition with older party members. A good option are Youth Councils. Marwa wants to create one in her hometown. The first prize for the best participant interview goes to "Good in Revolution. Bad in Policy." Link The interviewer is Michael Różycki.
In the category "interview about an institution", the first prize goes to an institution that successfully qualifies women to earn their own living as self-employed: "Yes To Wes." The interviewer is Theresa Streib. Link
