International music journalism award – call for proposals

Somewhat earlier than in the past years, we are launching the call to find the music journalist of the year and the year's best works of music journalism 2020, because we want to give the musicjournalistic works, which have been released in fall and winter, a better starting position. So from now on you can suggest great works right after you have read or heard them. 

Can think of someone who would deserve this award as much as the winners of 2019 (photo)? Who has helped you understand music better? Where do you go to find the best background information? Which format has been most exciting in the last year?

For the forth time, the International Music Journalism Award is to be awarded at Reeperbahn Festival 2020. Ceremony will take place on Friday, 18 September. Save the date!

Find more information and submit your favourites until 31 May 2020 here.



Bob Rock is a veteran of the music industry having produced for artists as diverse as Metallica, Michael Bublé, Bon Jovi and Cher across a career spanning four decades!
As part of Reeperbahn Festival 2019 we talked to him about the impact technology has had on making music, how he approaches his craft and what the future holds for music and production.
