Hear ye, hear ye…It’s time once again to select the Global 100, realscreen‘s listing of the top production companies working in factual and documentary television and film as named by you, members of the non-fiction entertainment industry.

As with previous years, this year we’re asking you to submit your own personal lists of the docs and factual programs that you believe were the most innovative, original, best executed and just plain best productions of 2009, and the production companies behind them. (Fear not – if you don’t know the prodcos behind the projects, we’ll do the research and track them down.)

However, there is an additional set of criteria this year that we would like you to consider with your nominations. In order to make this year’s list more representative of both the wide range of production companies creating top quality work around the world and the range of subject matter covered by non-fiction prodcos, we would like you to submit what you think were the best pieces of work from the past year in the following categories:

Factual Entertainment

History

Lifestyle

Music, Arts and Culture

Political, Social and Religious

Science & Nature

We feel that asking you to consider these categories when casting your nominations will result in a list that will be truly diverse, both from an international and topical perspective.

Send your nominations in to Lindsay Gibb at lgibb@brunico.com, Kelly Anderson at kanderson@brunico.com, and editor Barry Walsh at editor@realscreen.com or bwalsh@brunico.com. If you are nominating a prodco, please state a project or two that your choice produced over the past year. And feel free to include any comments about your choice, and the projects they were behind, as we’d like to include industry commentary concerning the work of the past year within the report.

We look forward to your input!
