German Language Competition 2023: Award Ceremony and Podcast

It was time to celebrate the winners of the 2023 DAAD/ILCS German Language Competition!

On 3rd November 2023, ten of the twelve winners of the 2023 DAAD/ILCS German Language Competition celebrated their entries together with their guests and the wider public during an Award Ceremony at Senate House, University of London. They also had the opportunity to engage in a discussion with Julia Franke, curator of the DHM exhibition ‘Roads not taken. Oder: Es hätte auch anders kommen können’, and Dr Alex Lloyd, Lecturer in German at the University of Oxford.

Earlier in the the afternoon, the winners joined forces to do a workshop and produce a podcast with BBC Journalist Apprentice Chelsea Coates. After learning the principles of podcasting, they spoke about their ideas of ‘Roads not Taken’ in German history, the creative writing process and advice for other German learners.

Check out the competition page to see  impressions from the evening and to listen to the podcast the winners produced.
