The FELIX AWARD 2016 -2022

Each year offers a multitude of exciting athletic major events, such as the Olympic Games or the World Cup. The athletes from NRW are always right at the forefront. At numerous further national and international competitions, the athletes from NRW are among the favorites. 

For their dedication they receive the FELIX , which the Sport Confederation NRW along with the state have awarded since 2007. Besides top athletic performances, engagement, fair-play and personality play a large role in who receives the prestigious award. 

The cities of Düsseldorf and Dortmund take turns with the award ceremony. 

The basis for the annual planning is the lighting & set design, which pushes the look and feel of the brand Felix Award forward,  in consideration of the location, artists and variability in the realization.

Based on the planning and the design, we develop tender specifications, which helps to find a new mix of service providers each year. 

On site, we monitor the construction and the cooperation between the different professions, so that the event direction and the WDR would be offered a smooth production environment. To this end, our company provides the operator team and the VJ visuals.

The selection of the athletes 

The citizens of NRW decide on whoever comes in first and receives the FELIX. From the beginning of November on they can vote for the nominated candidates. 

In December, the award show itself becomes a true celebration of sports. Besides the tributes, further highlights such as several course gala dinners, show acts, surprise guests and the big after-show party await the guests. 

The operators are the Sport Confederation NRW and the State Government NRW. The organizer is the CP/COMPARTNER Agentur für Kommunikation GmbH from Essen. The media partner is the WDR, who airs a one-hour recording on the day after the award.

We would like to thank our clients, locations, the different industries as well as our team for the long-standing and trusting collaboration.
