History

First held with 350 people in the Flora[1] in Cologne in 1992,[2] the award ceremony in Frankfurt was televised and the classical awards were moved to a separate event, Echo Klassik, in Cologne in 1994.[3] Until 1995, only invited guests could attend the ceremony.[4] It was held in Munich,[1] and in 2001, the venue was moved from Hamburg to Berlin[5] because of subsidies of up to 20 million euros, although a return in 2004 was considered.[6] In 2009, the venue in Berlin was moved to O2 World.[7]

Trophy

The trophy was designed by Oliver Renelt when he was a student at the Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg. It is stainless steel, and is 40 centimetres (16 in) tall and weighs 2 kilograms (4.4 lb).[1] It depicts half a disc with notes flowing into it from a globe, and the design was the winner of a competition held for that purpose.[4]

Echo Awards

The Kastelruther Spatzen have won 13 Echo Awards in the category Volksmusik which is more than any other artist; the awards were in 1993, 1996–2003, 2006–2010.
