With the APPLAUS and German Jazz Prize, the Minister of State for Culture, Claudia Roth, as the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM), honours important protagonists in the German music landscape. Clubs, organisers, artists, projects and extraordinary achievements receive the necessary financial and non-material attention in the form of prize money and public recognition.

The annual award ceremonies also serve as a platform for exchange, networking and cooperation between various industry representatives.




Since 2013, APPLAUS has been awarded to outstanding and trend-setting live music programmes in the field of popular music and jazz.
