Ove Sprogøe Prisen 2021

Ove Sprogøe Prisen

Ove Sprogøe Prisen is awarded annually and is given to a Danish actor or actress for an unusual effort on television, film or theater during the year

Ove Sprogøe Prisen was founded in 2006 by Morten Grunwald and Nordisk Film with the donation of the fees from the authors behind the book "Den fynske vulkan" and Ove Sprogøe's memorial performance.
The prize consists of an amount of DKK 50,000. Nordisk Film Fonden has since 2011 donated the award money to continue the award in Ove Sprogøes name.

The prize committee consists of:

  • Mikael Rieks, Producer and Chairperson
  • Henning Sprogøe, Actor
  • Danica Curcic , Actress
  • Solbjørg Højfeldt, Actress
  • Maria Månson, DR, MA in Media studies
  • Elisa Kragerup, Theater Manager at Betty Nansen
  • Jacob Wendt, Journalist and film critic
  • Frederik Honoré, Nordisk Film

In the choice of recipients, emphasis is placed on the person having a talent with the potential for the same popular and broad appeal as Ove Sprogøe.

Earlier Ove Sprogøe Prisen was awarded in connection with Ove Sprogøe's birthday on December 21, but from 2017 Ove Sprogøe Prisen has been part of ISBJØRNEN, Nordisk Film Fondens honorary award show.
