MIPCOM organizer Reed Midem has unveiled the winning programs for the third annual MIPCOM Diversify TV Excellence Awards.
Dedicated to celebrating and promoting “diversity and inclusion in all forms across the international television industry,” the awards recognize scripted and non-scripted projects that have been launched in the past 12 months or with a season “presenting a marked change to the storyline embracing representation, diversity and inclusion.”
Winning programs will be selected by non-profits that campaign for equality and inclusion, including GADIM, GLAAD, ILGA-Europe, Minority Rights, Race Equality Foundation, SCOPE, Show Racism the Red Card, and Sporting Equals.
The 2019 MIPCOM Diversify TV Excellence Awards were held on Monday (Oct. 14) at the Carlton Hotel in Cannes. The awards are part of the MIPCOM content market, which takes place in Cannes from Oct. 14 to 17.
