Amsterdammer van het Jaar
During Amsterdammer of the Year we celebrate the city of Amsterdam. We celebrate citizenship, togetherness and the selfless efforts of many people who make the city more beautiful, more liveable and whole.
An Awardshow to celebrate the city of Amsterdam
During this festive afternoon, we choose the Amsterdammer and the Amsterdammertje (young Amsterdammer) of the year, two Amsterdam residents who have been of special significance for our city. From a young informal carer to a dedicated volunteer, from a special local resident to an active collector for charity. The smallest inhabitants of Amsterdam are also put in the spotlight. The finalists of Amsterdammertje of the Year are all aged between 8 and 15.
Afterwards there will be a party and the whole of Amsterdam will dance on the stage of the large auditorium.
