Rose d'Or A Eurovision Award

The Rose d'Or (Golden Rose) is one of the most important international festivals in entertainment broadcasting and programming. Eurovision first acquired the Rose d’Or in 1961, when it was created by Swiss Television in the lakeside city of Montreux. The awards stayed with Eurovision for almost 40 years. Eurovision re-acquired the awards in 2013 and successfully re-launched the event that year in Brussels.

In 2014 the event will take place on 17 September in Berlin, Germany. For the first time in its 53 year history, the competition categories have been extended to include radio and online video programmes in addition to the traditional focus on television. Producers, executives from independent and public service broadcasters and heads of production companies from all over the world take part. The Rose d'Or rewards originality, quality and creativity and sets the gold standard of excellence in entertainment programming.

Format[edit]

There are six Award categories for television and online video:

  1. Comedy (non-scripted and scripted comedy shows excluding sitcoms, but including sketches, panel, improvisation, clips, comedy specials and stand-up routines.)
  2. Sitcom (scripted situational comedy shows involving regular characters in various everyday situations, in a limited number of sets. A main plot is to be resolved within an episode.)
  3. Game Show (studio or location-based shows which, through a range of physical or mental challenges, culminate in winners and losers. This category includes quizzes, panel games, reality programmes, and puzzle-based shows.)
  4. Reality and Factual Entertainment (programmes in which a situation or topic is treated through real-life characters or actors (reenactment) or programmes which follow real-life characters.)
  5. Arts (programmes featuring stage recordings and television adaptations of performing arts, or documen-taries dedicated to art forms or artists.)
  6. Entertainment (variety and event show programmes, single or continuing episodes which showcase performing talent.)

There are three radio Award categories:

  1. Comedy (non-scripted and scripted comedy shows excluding sitcoms, but including sketches, panel, im-provisation, clips, comedy specials and stand-up routines.)
  2. Reality and Factual Entertainment (programmes in which a situation or topic is treated through real-life characters or actors (reenactment) or programmes which follow real-life characters.)
  3. Entertainment (variety and event show programmes, single or continuing episodes which showcase performing talent.)

History[edit]

The festival was founded by Marcel Bezençon, who was inspired by the need of what was then a small group of international colleagues to find programmes to fill their summer schedules. He had the idea that Switzerland could produce an entertainment programme, which could then be swapped with programmes from other national broadcasters. The festival was held in the spring to have programmes ready for broadcast in the summer, and the Golden Rose awards established as an extra incentive. As the festival grew, programme swaps ceased to be viable and the innovative concept of the Film Kiosk was born. This idea – widely copied since then – rapidly turned the Rose d'Or into one of the world's most important entertainment programme markets. The awards became an important part of European television culture, and Golden Rose winners usually receive much prestige and publicity in their home countries.
