Rose d’Or 2022 Shortlist Announced

The Rose d’Or is pleased to announce that over 200 programmes from 30 countries have been selected for consideration in the final stages of Rose d’Or 2022.

Mark Rowland, Chair of the Judges said “the quality of entries from across the globe gets ever higher, we’ve been presented with some very tough choices to arrive at this shortlist. Congratulations to everyone who entered and to all the fantastic productions that have reached this stage”.

Jean Philip De Tender, EBU Deputy Director General/Director Media said “Once again, we’ve seen staggering levels of international broadcast and production talent in contention for the Rose d’Or Awards, whittled down from a record-breaking number of entries. This is what we love about these awards – they’re a powerful vehicle for highlighting our diverse industry and they enable us to reward those who create and interpret new worlds for us to inhabit.”

The nominees for Rose d’Or 2022 will be announced at the start of November, ahead of the Awards which will be presented on November 28th.

The entries for consideration in each category are as follows:
