The annual SCORE Bernhard Wicki Award is a competition for extraordinary feature films and is decided on by audience vote. Our main award goes to the feature film with the highest audience rating in the competition.
The award itself was named after the great director Bernhard Wicki (1919-2000). With this award the Festival honours his services to German filmmaking as well as to the development of the Emden Film Festival in the years 1990 to 1999.
The SCORE Bernhard Wicki Award has a purse of € 10,000 provided by the SCORE-Tankstellen und Mineralölhandels-GmbH.
