About Rose d’Or

The prestigious Rose d’Or Awards define the gold standard for excellence and achievement in entertainment programming.

Eurovision first acquired the Rose d’Or in 1961, when it was created by Swiss Television in the lakeside city of Montreux. The awards stayed with Eurovision for almost 40 years. Eurovision re-acquired the awards in 2013 and successfully re-launched the event that year in Brussels, then relocated to Berlin from 2014 to 2018.

In 2019 the EBU partnered with international publishing company and digital channels business C21Media to take over the organisation of the Rose d’Or Awards. The 58th Rose d’Or was hosted for the first time in Kings Place, London, in December 2019.

Recent winners include: 13 Minutes to the Moon, Chernobyl and Micheal McIntyre’s Big Show. Past recipients of Rose d’Or Special Awards include Maren Kroymann, Ricky Gervais, Joanna Lumley, Angela Lansbury, James Corden, Jan Böhmermann and John Cleese.
