Inside the SCI German Chapter discussions were held about the fact that there was no Award for big game hunters honoring their hunting successes achieved in Europe.

To promote big game hunting in Europe and to enhance the interest in collecting as many European big game species as possible, therefore having to travel to all corners of the European Continent, a group of SCI friends, together with the Ullmann family decided to create

„The Ullmann Award for European Big Game Trophy Animals“

and make it public during the 1995 „Jagen und Fischen Show“ in Erding, Germany
