Yesterday: The (still) small DVD night in the Lenbach Palace’s Gobelin ballroom in Munich
The Entertainment Night with the Video Champion Awards is an unmissable event within the industry. In November 2012, G+J Entertainment Media will be handing out the Video Champions awards for the best releases of the year on DVD and Blu-ray for the thirteenth time. As in previous years, the award does not focus on sales figures, but rather on the production, quality, packaging and marketing of the products.
The jury, consisting of editors and film experts from the trade journals VideoMarkt and Blickpunkt:Film, decided upon eight programme categories in 2011. In detail these were: German Film, International Film, Family Entertainment, Music, TV, Special Interest, Boxset and Special Edition.
Europe’s most prestigious home entertainment award

Outstanding design and special technical achievements are judged.
