Rose d’Or 2014 accepting online video and radio entries
Eurovision’s Rose d’Or awards opened this year to entries from the broadest ever range of media platforms, including online video, radio and television.
This is one of several format changes to this year’s event, which last year attracted a record 320 entries following its successful re-launch by Eurovision, operated by the European Broadcasting Union.
The timing of the event has also shifted. The awards ceremony, which is open to both public service and commercial media, will take place in Berlin on 17 September.
Eurovision director Annika Nyberg Frankenhaeuser said the additional category was introduced to reflect the shift towards providing consumers with access to content on multiple platforms.
“We talk about liquid content that flows across a variety of platforms. It’s time to recognize the best of programming, whatever the platform,” Ms Nyberg Frankenhaeuser said. “Everything from classic radio shows to new players, like Netflix and Amazon, will be welcome to compete for a Rose d’Or. Inclusion and recognition of excellence is central to our values.”
The seven categories showcasing originality, quality and creativity in television and online video broadcasts include:
- Game Show
- Reality and Factual Entertainment
The deadline for submissions is March 28, 2014 and further details are at the Rose d’Or website.
