Carnival of Facts – The awards ceremony

Come in! Come in! You are welcome, dear audience, ladies and gentlemen, dear hat stands (m/f/d/rept), chemtrail squadrons, employees of the lying press and the NWO,

On October 29, 2023, the gates in the home port of Neukölln will open again and invite you into the wondrous world of facts and curiosities, the incomprehensible and extraordinary.

Get ready for an evening full of knowledge and madness and be there live when the negative prize for the conspiracy stories of the year - the Golden Aluminum Hat - is awarded for the 9th time in Berlin!

Conspiracy stories have been around for a long time. They come from the dark corners of the internet, from the fringes of the community, and threaten the foundations of democracy. They distort reality and endanger society. And not just since the pandemic.

The aim of awarding the Golden Aluminum Hat is not only to “honor” the most absurd stories and most dangerous misinformation in a freak show of nonsense, but above all to raise awareness of the dangers of disinformation and the importance of critical thinking.

The Golden Aluminum Hat & Facts Heroes Award 2023

Those who oppose the belief in conspiracy will also be honored this evening. Those who stand up for facts, society and science and thus contribute to enlightenment. Your work is invaluable, and so the organizers would like to simply say thank you with the 2nd Facts Heroes Award. Thank you for making facts great again!
