    We’re excited to let you know that nominations for the 2017 Rose d’Or Awards will open on 2 May AND we’re returning to the stunning Axica venue in Berlin for this year’s ceremony.

    There are some important changes this year – we’ve expanded the TV categories so even more of your work can be showcased in Berlin.

    The 10 categories you can submit entries for this year are listed below – they celebrate the best drama, sitcoms, reality, variety and game shows.

    And new for 2017 - Children and Youth programmes, Virtual Reality and TV Movies also get their own categories. 

    The Rose d’Or Awards are unique – we want you to have the chance to meet and network with others in the industry. For the first time in 2017 we’ll be hosting a “networking forum” on the afternoon of Tuesday 19 September where you can get to know other producers and take part in discussions about the nominated shows. More details of the line-up coming soon.
