Media Kit

The DP is a German-language magazine that covers the entire spectrum of digital media production. Our editorial team focuses on the technical and aesthetic realms of animation, visual effects, visualizations and design as well as on various postproduction processes. In addition to this general focus, each issue spotlights one or two extensive areas. These revolve around themes drawn from the areas of hardware & software development, games & interactive media, science & education and business & industry. DP organises the annual animago AWARD & CONFERENCE and also publishes DP’s animago Special Issue.
