Jovanka v. Wilsdorf: “Of course, we knew that there are great female music producers* out there, but we didn’t expect such an onslaught of high-class applications! The selection was damn hard. It shows how overdue this award was, and more importantly, that this can only be the beginning.”

The award ceremony took place in September 2022 at the Sony Diamond Lounge, following a day of production and how-to-business workshops at the Sony Circle Studios, Berlin.

The 2022 prize consists of production grants, special training, music equipment vouchers, and inclusion in the producer rooster at Sony Music and NEUBAU management.

The winners of 2022 are GOTOPO, Jenny Gerdts, Novaa, Nora Medin, Maxi Menot
