The 4th edition of the MIPCOM Diversify TV Awards will be held in October. The intention is to once again hold the event at the MIPCOM conference and market in Cannes, France. However, the awards will be presented, regardless of whether the conference is able to go ahead as planned.
Shows will be judged not only on the quality of filmaking, acting, directing, scriptwriting etc, but also on their representation and portrayal of marginalised groups. The winning entries will be judged by charities and groups that are dedicated to supporting / campaigning for these communities and understand first hand the struggles and frustrations that are dealt with on a daily basis, therefore shows reinforcing dangerous stereotypes will not be rewarded.
As always, entry to the awards is free of charge and is open to programming in any language from anywhere around the world. To read more about the guidelines for entry please click here
