Nominations announced for the 2019 Rose d’Or Awards
We are proud to announce the nominees for the 2019 Rose d’Or Awards. Across the ten categories works from across the world have been nominated, creating a diverse and dynamic shortlist. From the pop culture phenomenon Carpool Karaoke, to social experiment Black Out and comedy mockumentary Couples Therapy, the nominations showcase a wide range of subject matter and stylistic approach.
Previous winners of the prestigious award include The Crown, Gogglebox and The Graham Norton Show.
The shortlist was voted for by 60 international judges made up of media industry professionals, chaired by The Bridgestar Sofia Helin.
Sofia Helin, Chair of the jury said: “The shortlist for The Rose d’Or awards this year is brilliantly diverse, and
we’re delighted to see so many international programmes shortlisted which reflects the outstanding and varied output of entertainment programming we have seen in the last year across the globe. With a record-breaking amount of entries this year, it is an incredibly exciting time for the Rose d’Or Awards especially as they near their 60th anniversary. Our congratulations to all nominated.”
For the first time, this year’s awards also include an Audio Entertainment category, celebrating the success podcasts, audiobooks and radio content has seen over the past year. The works nominated cover a range of topics from a 10-year scandal-plagued international race to breed the world’s hottest chili to the taboo subject of death.
