Barbara Dex


Vote here for the new name for the ‘Barbara Dex Award’

One thought it was a good thing, the other thought we were crazy. The reactions on our article about cancelling the (in)famous Barbara Dex Award were mixed, to put it lightly. Fortunately, we could clearly count on your support because we received a huge number of suggestions for a name for our new award. We have now reduced them to ten possible names for you to choose from.

It was definitely difficult to select the ten best options from all the suggestions you gave us. We got the most bizarre motivations but also motivations that make you think. Our new award should feel like a gift to the recipient, not an insult, and we truly believe we can achieve that with one of the options below. Get to know why we start a new award with another name.

Here are the ten possibilities, in alphabetical order:

  • Conan Osíris Award
  • Dana International Award
  • Elina Nechayeva Award
  • Kateryna Pavlenko Award
  • Lee Lin Chin Award
  • Lordi Award
  • Silvia Night Award
  • TIX Award
  • Verka Serduchka Award
  • You’re A Vision! Award

The choice is yours

Now it’s up to you! You can choose the best option from these ten options. You can do this by casting your vote using the form below. We will announce the winner on April 29 via a livestream on our socials.
