    From Elton John to the downright bizarre, we preview the Berlin Music Video Awards Dina Elsayed



This year’s Berlin Music Video Awards will take place from May 23 and 26. Since 2013, the awards have highlighted the art behind music videos while acting as a networking platform for musicians and filmmakers.

Aviel Silook, founder of the event, has always been a huge fan of music videos. In fact, at the age of 14, Silook would wake up in the middle of the night, just to watch all the censored videos he loved. It resulted in him missing 100 days of school. Now Silook says the biggest reward of his job is watching what happens throughout the weekend, when the nominees all get to know each other and then collaborate together for the following year.

We’re giving away three pairs of tickets to Berlin Music Video Awards for May 23, 24 and 25. To enter, just send us an email at with your full name and the subject line “Berlin Music Video Awards Tickets.” Be sure to write us by Tuesday, May 22nd at 6 p.m. when three winners will be chosen at random. Good luck!
