About the Inclusion Prize 2011 The Department of Media Services of the Federal Ministry of Education is very happy about the numerous submissions to the Inclusion Prize 2011 of the mla from Special Needs Educational Centres. The projects that were submitted convinced the jury with their authentic depictions of the life circumstances of handicapped people. This shows the practical implementation of the demands contained in the UN Convention which require the participation of handicapped people in media projects. The Federal Ministry regrets, however, that there was only one submission for the Inclusion Prize 2011 from an integrated class. In order to encourage the lived inclusion of handicapped and non-handicapped children and to depict that social coexistence in media the ministry will take special measures in 2012 to motivate integrated classes to take part and thus complying with the intention of the prize.

AWARD WINNERS 2003
As was the case last year, the level of commitment of all the participants
was exceptionally high. This can also be seen from the high standard of
the submitted work. Because of this it was a challenge for the jury to
filter out the best of the best and to make the awards. In getting to
a fair result the jury did not make it easy for themselves. Each of the
135 submitted projects were examined and assessed with the aid of a questionnaire.
By the way: jury assessment questionnaires can be downloaded as PDF files.
