The call for submissions to our annual MIPCOM Picks feature resulted in yet another eagerly-viewed collection of clips for projects from around the world. And as with every year, some programming trends became apparent in reviewing the content. While Royal Family programming always makes an appearance when we make our call for clips, this year, with the arrival of Prince George, there were several royalty-focused projects in the mix, with a couple making the cut here. As well, the upcoming 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy resulted in myriad Kennedy projects making their way to the MIPCOM Picks submissions pool, and will doubtlessly mean a glut of JFK-related programming on the international airwaves.
But as for what made the grade this time around according to our editorial team, you’ll have to read on. Congratulations to our “Best in Show,” which wins a pass to the 2014 Realscreen Summit for the submitting company.
