VOK DAMS produces the Fred Jay Award ceremony. The award is presented annually by the GEMA Foundation and the GEMA General Assembly.

For the second time in a row, the Munich team of the event and live-marketing agency VOK DAMS has been responsible for the event surrounding the Fred Jay Award. Around 700 musicians came together in the Tonhalle Munich for the presentation of the renowned prize.

The award ceremony was followed by a concert by Mark Forster, who performed his songs "Flash mich", "Wir sind groß", "Sowieso", "Au Revoir" and "Chöre". The concert was followed by the Aftershow Party, to which the German music industry was invited.

For over 30 years, the Fred Jay Prize has been awarded to German lyricists who have shaped German musical culture with their songs. With their lyrics, the prizewinners have made a major contribution to the development of German lied and German-language music culture. This year, singer-songwriter Mark Forster received the prize.
