On Friday, June 11, 2021 Digitalcourage and other civil rights organisations will present this year’s BigBrotherAwards. The BigBrotherAwards, also known as the „Oscars für data leeches“, are “negative” or “anti” awards to draw public attention to companies, persons, institutions, or technologies whose actions severely infringe on fundamental rights and data privacy.
The awards ceremony will take place in the „Hechelei“, a historic location in Bielefeld, Germany. Due to Corona restrictions, we cannot yet confirm how many guests and media representatives will be able to be present. We are planning with a stringent hygienic concept and a limited number of participants. The awards ceremony will be broadcast as a livestream with simultaneous translation to English.
