In addition, for 2020 there will be the ‘Innovation in the time of Covid’ Award for the programme or series, that, against all the odds, re-defined what television can achieve – and how television can be produced – in a time of unprecedented crisis.

The ceremony will go ahead on schedule on December 9 – but now as a live online event unless public health circumstances permit the full ceremony to go ahead in person, in London.

Jean PhilipJean Philip De Tender, EBU Media Director, says “Great, diverse content has always resonated with audiences. But this most extraordinary of years has shown how fundamental our need is for information and entertainment, distraction and connection. The Rose d’Or Awards will be an important coming together after one of the greatest ever challenges to broadcasting – and will celebrate how the industry has responded with creativity, ingenuity, and sheer determination to deliver the best productions of the year.”

All programmes and series that have first aired, anywhere in the world, on a broadcast, streaming, online or mobile platform between June 17, 2019 and September 30, 2020 are eligible.

To acknowledge the impact of the virus on the production sector, all entries will be at a 30% discount for 2020.

There will be an additional ticket price for the gala final should it happen as a physical event.

The Awards will be open for entries through from July 9 until September 30, through
