Three Golden Nymphs will be awarded for Best Grand News Report, Best Documentary and the Special Jury Prize.
In partnership with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, the prestigious Prince Rainier III Special Prize will be awarded to the best documentary dealing with important environmental themes.
This year, each program from the Official Selection of the Fiction category and of the Prince Rainier III Special Prize will be presented during the Festival during screenings open to the public.
“Like every year, the Golden Nymphs Competition will recognize the best content in global television production. The multiplication of viewing possibilities on different screens as well as the significant increase in productions lead to an increasingly exciting competition,” explains Laurent Puons, Deputy Vice-President of the Monte-Carlo Television Festival. – “Our goal is always to honour the best content that entertains and educates consumers, and to raise awareness on a multitude of themes related to our planet. The News category recognizes programs that bring a fresh perspective and a clear understanding of the current issues facing our world, while our Fiction category highlights the most successful productions of the year. We look forward to receiving the works of producers, distributors and directors who wish to promote their programs on the international scene through our event”.
Among the competition’s other prizes related to humanitarian action themes are the Monegasque Red Cross Prize and the AMADE Prize.
