Vienna Mini is not more and not less than the cherry on the cake of the debating year! Join us for 4 rounds of debating that just make your summer better!


28 June at 17:00 until 29 June at 18:00


Australian debaters call their BP tournaments Minis. Afterwards they usually win Worlds. So do you get where we got the idea from?

You expect those Vienna People to come up with something really big and massive, when they announce a summer tournament and all what you get is something called ‘Mini’? Like, seriously?

My dear friend, life should have taught you that size is not all that matters. Sometimes the pleasure sprouts from the tiny things, just look what Vienna Mini does for you: If you’ve been focussing too much on your exams recently, Vienna Mini cleans off the rust from your debating skills. If debating is your staff of life,these four rounds and the final are the cherry on the cake of your successful debating year.

Besides that, there is more to the ‘Mini’ than the fluffy name might suggest. The region’s finest adj core will judge you so fairly that you will automatically wish you had been more genuine in choosing your looks for the Friday evening Schnitzelessen at SV. So, despite the laid back athmosphere which DKWien loveliness is going to create for you, expect a healthy dose of tough competition for the four slots in the final on Saturday arvo.

After the winner is decided, it’s time to let out the joy that the semester is over. This is when things at Vienna Mini will be really going off. The Saturday night Social is powered by Stefan’s legendary Australs Night and everyone from the gets-to-sleep-at-7pm-hardcore-debaters to the social-surfers at DKWien knows that the Austral Night is among socials what the Great White is among the sharks of the Tasman Sea. Party and barbie will be on till early morning sunlight dips Vienna into a nice summery tint of orange.

If you found a better way to have a good time at the end of the semester, that’s fine, we’ll get over it (why do you not love us anymore? :-((( ). Otherwise, register here:
Individual speakers will be matched up in teams if they do not indicate a preference. The reg fee is 10 EUR (15 for non-DKWien members) and will be entirely spent on drinks to make Vienna Mini even more fun. Your reg fee drops to a mere 5 EUR if you have never spoken or judged at a tournament before.

CA: Radu Cotarcea
4 Rounds, 7min Speeches.
Start: Fri 5pm, meet in SR 5.47 (C) at WU
End of tournament: Sat 5:30pm
