The Bambi - Deutschlands Wichtigster Medienpreis,[1] often simply called Bambi Awards and stylized as BAMBI, are presented annually by Hubert Burda Media to recognize excellence in international media and television "with vision and creativity who affected and inspired the German public that year",[2] both domestic and foreign.[2] First held in 1948, they are the oldest media awards in Germany. The award is named after Felix Salten's book Bambi, A Life in the Woods and its statuettes are in the shape of the novel's titular fawn character.[2] They were originally made of porcelain, until 1958 when the organizers switched to using gold, with the casting done by the art casting workshop of Ernst Strassacker in Süßen.

Marika Rökk and Jean Marais were the first recipients of the award.[2] Frequent awardees include Heinz Rühmann (12), Peter Alexander and O. W. Fischer (10), Sophia Loren (9) and Maria Schell (8). The awards are judged by Hubert Burda and the editors-in-chief at Hubert Burda Media.[2]

Award recipients in 2009 included Colombian singer/songwriter and choreographer Shakira, actress Kate Winslet, Austrian actor Christoph Waltz, and Giorgio Armani, whose niece Roberta Armani accepted the award for him.[3] Shakira performed her single "Did It Again" before accepting her award.[4]
