Deadline announced for Global 100 nominations

Want to let us know who you think produced the best non-fiction content in 2010? You have until January 7, 2011 to send in your nominations for our annual Global 100 list of the world's top non-fiction production companies.
December 9, 2010

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. If you’d like to contribute by sending us your input, you have until Friday, January 7, 2011 to do so.

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 2010, and the production companies behind them. (If you don’t know the prodcos behind the projects, fear not as we’ll do the research and track them down.)

However, as with last year’s Global 100, 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
Music, Arts and Culture
Political, Social and Religious
Science & Nature

We feel that asking you to consider these categories when casting your nominations will help us compile a list that will be truly diverse, both from an international and topical perspective. The results will be published in the March/April 2011 issue of realscreen (just in time for MIPTV).

Send your nominations in to Kelly Anderson at, Kevin Ritchie at and editor Barry Walsh at or 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.

As always, thanks for your input.
