The Rose d’Or Global Entertainment Television Festival, celebrating international entertainment programming, has opened its call for entries for the 2012 edition’s Rose d’Or Awards.
For 2012, the range of categories has been expanded to 13, including a new category for lifestyle programming. Other categories relevant to the non-fiction and factual entertainment communities include the game show, children, youth, factual entertainment, arts documentary and performing arts and multi-platform divisions.
The fest has also introduced a digital upload system this year, enabling entrants to submit materials online and jurors to evaluate the entries via a secure web portal.
“The Rose d’Or Competition has traditionally focused on entertainment television,” said festival chairman Marco Castellaneta. “This tradition has been renewed and strengthened. The newly defined categories offer a clearer characterization of the genre, while recognizing the evolution of entertainment television.”
The deadline for entries is December 31, 2011. The 51st Rose d’Or Global Entertainment Television Festival takes place in Lucerne, Switzerland, from May 6-10. For more information, visit www.rosedor.ch.
