British comedies head the 2021 Rose D’or Awards hosted by Sue Perkins

Nominees for the prestigious 60th annual Rose d’Or Awards have been announced.

Selected from over 750 entries across 12 categories. The shortlist was voted for by a jury of 150 broadcast executives and leading producers, from across the international television industry.

Mark Rowland, Chair of the 2021 judges, said:

 “Despite the very considerable production challenges faced during the pandemic, we’ve seen an amazing breadth of subjects and creative treatments – with production standards higher than ever. Congratulations to all the nominees on an amazing achievement.”

Markus Sterky, Chair of the EBU TV Committee and content strategist at SVT, Sweden said:

“Covid lockdown or not, the Rose d’Or selection always delivers – and shows that the industry has managed to ride out the pandemic intact!  As always, it’s a truly international selection with strong representation from producers and broadcasters alike. The growing presence of streaming platforms has also helped raise the stakes – and made the selection feel both fresh and very diverse. So, this year, the record numbers of high-quality entries has made the jury’s work deliciously difficult!”

This year Rose d’Or Awards will be presented in a virtual ceremony, hosted Sue Perkins on on November 29th.

During the ceremony, special awards will also be presented for Lifetime Achievement, Performance of the Year, Emerging Talent and The Golden Rose, which honours the outstanding programme or series of the past year.
