Call for nominations for Realscreen’s Global 100 opens

Nominations for the Global 100, realscreen's listing of the top production companies working in non-fiction content as selected by members of the industry, will be accepted until January 15, 2013.
December 13, 2012

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 Tuesday, January 15, 2013 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 2012, 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 previous Global 100 lists, 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 2013 issue of realscreen (just in time for MIPTV).

Send your nominations in to Adam Benzine at, 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. For a look at realscreen‘s Global 100 for 2011, published early in 2012, click here.
