Rose d’Or 2022 Nominees Announced

Nominees for the prestigious 61st annual Rose d’Or Awards have been announced.

Selected from over 750 entries across 12 categories. These finalists were voted for by a jury of over 100 broadcast executives and producers, from across the international television industry.

Mark Rowland, Chair of the Judges, said: “In a record year, we’ve seen an unrivalled breadth of subjects and innovative creative approaches – with production standards higher than ever in all of the 30 countries whose broadcasters and producers entered shows. A huge thank you to everyone – and many congratulations to the talented production teams who have reached this final stage.”

Jean Philip De Tender, Deputy Director General/Director of Media, EBU, said: “These awards attract an exceptional level of talent and technical skills that make it so challenging to whittle down the entries to just six nominees in each category. It underlines for me that great content matters more than ever – telling a story and interpreting it with imagination and impact are the skills that really resonate with audiences. The creatives on our shortlist do this and more – each and every one has created something special and gives me real optimism that the future of programme making is in a very good place indeed.”

During the ceremony, special awards will also be presented for Emerging Talent, Performance of the Year and Lifetime Achievement.
