Does your company promote regional art or culture? Then you should apply for the renowned OWL Culture Award, which is being presented this year for the fourth time by the regional promotional organization OstWestfalenLippe GmbH in conjunction with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI) of Eastern Westphalia and the Lippe Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Detmold. District President Marianne Thomann-Stahl and Miele Managing Partner Dr. Reinhard Zinkann have taken on the sponsorship of this award, and the CCIs of Eastern Westphalia and Lippe are supporting the initiative, too.

The deadline for applications expires July 15th.

The deadline for applications expires July 15th. Applicants can be companies of any size – even smaller companies – that have promoted a cultural project over the preceding 24 months. The prize is awarded in three categories for different company sizes, because the jury is interested in more than just the size of the promotional budget; it also looks at the quality of the promotion and its integration in the company’s corporate communications.

Decisions by an expert jury

The jury is composed of regional figures from business, academia, culture, politics and the media. TMC’s managing director Mirco Welsing is a member of the jury in his capacity as Board Spokesman for the Wirtschaftsjunioren Ostwestfalen e.V., Bielefeld – an association of young entrepreneurs and businesspersons.
