DER WEISSE ELEFANT was awarded by the Medien-Club-München e.V. as part of the Munich Film Festival and Children‘s Film Festival in the Audimax of the University of Television and Film Munich. ​ Our in-house production Townsmen VR was awarded Best Game.

The prestigious Kids-Media-Award, the “Weisser Elefant” (white elephant) is being awarded in its 20th year and it was about time that computer games are a part of the media awards. Computer games have grown up and can offer some precious benefits even to younger gamers.
