Jump label navigation

Thank you for participating in the "Do! 2021" competition!

The response this year was overwhelming. A total of almost 500 competition entries were received. The large number of participants impressively shows that it is a matter close to the heart of many people in the villages and small towns to get involved, tackle and make a difference together.

What's next?

All competition entries submitted that meet the conditions of participation will be evaluated according to the specified criteria. An independent jury will select the best 50 idea concepts in July.

The winners will be announced on this website at the beginning of August 2021 and can also be found at www.machen2021.de.

The prize money can only be paid out in cash. After the announcement, all award winners will receive relevant information on the procedure. The prize money of 5,000 to 15,000 euros will then be paid out from September 2021.

I am impressed by the overwhelming response that this year's competition received with almost 500 competition entries. Especially in these special times, solidarity and social cohesion are so important. With your commitment and your energy you enrich our society and make it a little bit more lovable and livable every day. Thank you very much for that! I'm curious to see which project ideas the jury will recognize and keep my fingers crossed for everyone.
