The EBU is excited to announce that nominations for the 57th Rose d’Or Awards are now OPEN!

March 1, 2018

We’ll be honouring the best in television and online entertainment at a glittering ceremony at Axica in Berlin on Thursday 13 September and we want YOU to be a part of it.

You can submit your entries from 1 March in 10 different categories which celebrate the best drama, sitcoms, reality, variety and game shows.

Unlike other awards, those shortlisted in each category will be invited to discuss their work and share their experiences with others in the industry ahead of the ceremony.

Following in the footsteps of last year’s recipient Angela Lansbury, a Lifetime Achievement award will be given out in Berlin to celebrate one person’s immense contribution to the world of entertainment. 

We’ll also be honouring the Entertainer of The Year, an individual who has made their mark on audiences over the past 12 months.

“In 2017 we saw winners from 7 different countries collect a Rose d’Or. This year we once again invite the best global talent to submit their work so we can truly toast the best in international entertainment,” said EBU Head of Television Jeroen Depraetere.

“For nearly 60 years the Rose d’Or Awards have celebrated the gold standard in global entertainment and have always adapted to changes in the industry. This year we’re including Augmented Reality for first time alongside Virtual Reality and we’ve expanded the TV Movie category to include Limited Series to reflect the broad variety of entertainment available now to audiences.”

Producers have until 31 May to enter their submissions here with discounts available for multiple entries.
