The call for submissions is now on for the 2019 Realscreen Awards.
Set for the upcoming, first edition of the Realscreen Summit in New Orleans, the Realscreen Awards will honor unscripted and non-fiction programming first released within an 18-month eligibility period, between January 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018. The awards will return to a 12-month, calendar year eligibility period for the 2020 edition.
The Realscreen Awards continuously evolve to best represent the diverse types of non-fiction and unscripted entertainment programming that fall under the realscreen umbrella. During a high-profile presentation in January, we will pay tribute to outstanding content from around the world at the industry’s global celebration of non-fiction and unscripted entertainment excellence.
Entries will be awarded in 21 genre-specific categories, including our new Travel & Exploration category, that will then progress for the chance to receive one of our grand prize Awards of Excellence, honoring the best programs entered into each of our five main categories: Competition, Lifestyle, Reality, Non-Fiction, and Digital & Branded Content.
Returning this year will be the opportunity to win in the category of Best New Format, honoring a format first launched within the 2019 competition eligibility period. The Realscreen Awards will also present the Diversity and Inclusion Award, honoring a program that positively reflects diversity and inclusivity through its subject matter and casting, or provides a greater understanding of the topic, while educating viewers and inspiring positive change.
The deadline for entries is Friday, September 21. For more information, visit the official website.
