The eight nominees will only find out who the winner of the German Non-Fiction Prize is on the evening of the award ceremony at the Humboldt Forum.
Non-fiction books are the foundation for transmitting knowledge and developing informed opinions. At the same time, they can serve as a yardstick and stimulus for public discourse. In awarding the German Non-Fiction Prize, the Stiftung Buchkultur und Leseförderung des Börsenvereins des Deutschen Buchhandels focuses on this important social function.
The prize is awarded to outstanding German-language non-fiction that promotes social debate. The evaluation criteria are: the relevance of the topic, the narrative power of the text and the quality of the research.
The award’s chief sponsor is the Deutsche Bank Stiftung. The German Non-Fiction Prize’s patron is State Minister for Culture Monika Grütters.
Moderation Katrin Schumacher und René Aguigah
An event of the Stiftung Buchkultur und Leseförderung des Börsenvereins des Deutschen Buchhandels in cooperation with the Stiftung Humboldt Forum im Berliner Schloss.
