The Deutscher Fernsehpreis (German Television Award) is a German award for television programming, created in 1999 by German television channels Das Erste, ZDF, RTL and Sat.1.[1] It is awarded annually. It was created to be an equivalent to the Emmy Awards, though it is not organized by an academy. The Fernsehpreis is the successor to both the Telestar (Das Erste and ZDF) and the Goldener Löwe (RTL) awards.[2]


The first award took place on October 2, 1999 in Cologne. Every year another of the participating stations broadcast the ceremony:
