Laudator: Babara Köpplova – Gateway to Eastern European Documentary Films is an excellent approximation to Eastern European societies as they are reflected through  the film media, also linked with database on filmmakers, filmographies, organisations, markets a.s.o. . It is designed especially for documentary professionals in order to use it as a source of information on the development of film in East Europe through its history and reflecting its contemporaneous period of production.

DOKweb has to be estimated not only as a well structured archive based on wide ranging research and collection -  usable as a moving website, but also as a project that is engaged and involved in the film discourse on documentation of countries in transition The website is a extremely usable tool in getting orientation on what is going on in documentary film and in same time shows the lively film life in Eastern Europe  as it ever has been. Therefore the Jury  is happy to award the  media project with the Erasmus EuroMedia Medal of Excellence.
