Deutsche Welle is celebrating its 60th birthday this year. On May 3, 1953, Germany’s international broadcaster went on air with its first radio broadcast. In 1992 Deutsche Welle added international television programs, and in 1994 launched its first website. Since then much has changed from the media landscape and the technical possibilities for receiving DW content to the diversity of language programs – even Deutsche Welle itself has changed locations.
Join DW as it looks back at more than a half century of broadcasting history. That’s 60 years in dialogue with the world – all the reason to celebrate!
Great prizes for the best presents
Birthdays mean presents. So to celebrate DW’s anniversary, we’re asking all fans to send us photos with pictures showing their birthday greetings – from cakes and cards to creative surprises. Show us your support; we’re looking forward to your photos. The more creative the pictures are, the better.
Virtual birthday table
You can upload photos of your birthday present here until May 30, 2013. Starting in June you can help us select the best photos. For the winners, we’re offering one SLR-digital camera and five digital cameras. The most original photos will be published on our virtual birthday table on My DW.
