And the winners are:

Der Helga®, which was awarded for the first time in 2013,  is presented by Festivalguide and Reeperbahn Festival. The jury includes a wide range of industry professionals. And why the ‘Helgas’ ? Well the story I was told was that it comes from a rather ‘merry’ young man who spent all night at a festival looking for his lost girlfriend called Helga … and by morning everyone was calling her name!

And here are the winners, hosts and award presenters at the Imperial Theatre in Hamburg!
