The Goldene Kamera (en: Golden Camera) is an annual German film and television award, awarded by the television magazine HÖRZU. The gold-plated silver award model was created by Berlin artist Wolfram Beck. It is 25 centimeters (approximately 10 inches) high and weighs around 900 grams. In the category for the best newcomer actor/actress the name of the award is Lilli-Palmer-und-Curd-Jürgens-Gedächtniskamera (en: Lilli Palmer and Curd Jürgens Memorial Camera). Only this category involves a prize money of 20,000 euros.
The award was first presented in 1965 as a strictly German television award. Since 1987, it has also been awarded to international stars. And in 1995 the categories expanded to more public interests, such as pop groups and organizations, for example Greenpeace.
