• The German Mobility Award (DMP) is geared toward anyone wishing to contribute their ideas and work toward viable mobility. The prerequisite is that the projects meet the Conditions for Participation. Participation in the DMP is free of charge.

  • In the DMP 2022, projects are awarded in nine prize categories. An audience prize is also awarded. You can find additional information in the Conditions for Participation.

  • Yes, unless the project has already won a DMP.

  • The number of applications per applicant is unlimited.

  • You can apply with a project that is also being funded through the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV) or other ministries.

  • The only prerequisite for applying is that you work with your project in Germany (except in the DMP International category, in which projects can also be awarded that are focussed outside Germany or submitted by applicants residing outside Germany).

  • Applications can be submitted beginning on 15 June 2022. The cut-off date is 31 August 2022, 11:59 p.m. CET.

  • Applications can be submitted through the application form.

  • Once the application has been submitted, it is generally no longer possible to edit the application form. However, if you still want to make a change, please contact us via Help Request.

  • You can get help with all questions concerning the application during four application coachings. You can find all deadlines and additional information here.

  • As a general principle, anyone can nominate people or projects. Other regulations apply in exceptional cases. These can be read in the Conditions of Participation.

  • To nominate a person or project, you must fill out the Application form for nominations between 15 June 2022 and 15 August 2022.

  • If a nominated person or project rejects the nomination, the project or person will automatically cease being part of the application process.

  • After the cut-off date on 31 August 2022, the group of experts uses an evaluation matrix from all applications and nominations to create a longlist consisting of 40 entries. The longlist is published on 15 September 2022 on the DMP website. Afterward, the audience is called on to vote online. At the same time, two jury members evaluate the projects. The audience and jury evaluations are included in the shortlist in a 30:70 ratio.

    The jury discusses the shortlist and votes on it using a secret ballot during the jury meeting on 26 October 2022. Every project on the shortlist receives transparent feedback from the jury.

    On 27 October 2022, the prizewinners of DMP 2022 will be announced as part of a festive award ceremony.

  • The jury consists of eight experts from the areas of digitisation and mobility in politics, business, science, and civil society. One additional jury member is an expert from a different field.  One citizen and one DMP alumnus are also represented in the jury. You can apply for that seat here.

  • If you believe a project breaches our Conditions of Participation or netiquette, please email us at (info@mobilitaetspreis.de).

  • The audience voting takes place online here. To be able to vote, you must register on our website with your email address. Voting is possible from 15 September 2022 up to and including 10 October 2022.

  • The prizewinners will be announced on 27 October in Berlin. The event will be broadcast live.

  • Voting takes place online. Please register and confirm the Conditions of Participation.

  • If this happens, please email us at (info@mobilitaetspreis.de).

  • The German Mobility Award aims to bridge technological and social innovation and people’s day-to-day experiences. This allows the ideas of citizens to be used to develop mobility. The most important goal of the DMP is therefore to network the participants with each other and encourage the exchange of knowledge and experiences.

  • The German Mobility Award carries no prize money. Therefore, all the projects on the long- and shortlists receive a great deal of public attention and the opportunity to advertise themselves with one of the most important distinctions in the area of digital mobility. There are also numerous occasions and opportunities for networking and transparent jury feedback for all projects on the shortlist.

  • In 2022, the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV) commissioned the iRights.Lab and the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. to plan, implement, and support the German Mobility Award.

  • You can find an overview of alumni projects from previous years here.

  • You can exchange information with the alumni projects through the DMP Community or at our events. If you have questions about the competitions of previous years, you can contact us here.
