The Jury

The independent body of currently 154 jurors is as heterogeneous as the range of musical genres and word art productions. At present, there are 32 juries. Five experts per jury determine and evaluate the best new productions. What all jurors have in common is a profound knowledge of the genre they asses. All jury members of the PdSK e.V. do their work for the »German Record Critics’ Award« voluntarily.
