DIANA is the first AI song contest with an associated songwriting camp and its own award ceremony. After the sensational DIANA premiere at c/o pop 2020, selected musicians came together for the second time to create songs with artificial intelligence and to realize them on film within one day. During the DIANA Award Ceremony at this year's Cologne Music Week, the song contest winners were chosen and were awarded the coveted DIANA trophy.
DIANA SONGWRITING CAMP 2021
The DIANA Songwriting Camp kicked off the Song Contest on the 22nd of October 2021: The eleven musicians, lyricists, and producers were selected in advance by a jury. The criteria were the quality and uniqueness of the applications. No previous knowledge of AI and AI software was required. Over the course of a day, the four teams wrote songs using various AI tools. Subsequently, a music video was generated for every song using AI video software.
DIANA CEREMONY 2021
The DIANA Ceremony took place on the 23rd of October 2021: After meeting and working in the Songwriting Camp one day prior, the four competing teams presented their songs in the beautiful St. Michael church in Cologne. The show was completed by a brilliant live performance by the artist VALENTIN and the exciting voting process to identify this year's winning team as well as its ceremonial awarding with the DIANA trophy and other prizes! Congratulations to team #2 for taking home the DIANA trophy 2021!
