Nominees announced for Monte Carlo’s TV Festival

The nominees for the Golden Nymph Awards, which will be presented by Prince Albert at the 57th Monte-Carlo Television Festival on June 20, have been announced.

Entries for the Golden Nymph Awards continue to increase, the organisers say, with submissions in 2017 significantly up on the previous year. Across seven categories spanning Fiction and News programming, applications have been received from more than 50 countries.

Laurent Puons, CEO of Monaco Mediax, organisers of the Monte-Carlo Television Festival, said: “With ever expanding opportunities for viewers to access the best in television content, the supply of internationally-relevant, high-quality programming continues to strengthen around the world.”

Mr Puons added, “This growth is driving the ongoing increase in the number, quality and diversity of submissions for the Golden Nymph Awards. The Festival’s Awards are renowned throughout the world for recognising true excellence in the fields of content creation and acting talent, and I’m looking forward to welcoming our nominees to Monte Carlo in June.”

The Monte-Carlo Television Festival will take place from June 16 to 20. The annual event celebrates the very best of television and delivers marketing and public relations opportunities to producers and distributors looking to access a large group of international print and on-camera journalists to promote and support their sales to worldwide broadcasters.

The event first saw the light of day in 1960 at the urging of Princess Grace, who saw the Television Festival as one of many ways to help Monaco become a centre of excellence in so many spheres in the modern world. (Feature image: Facebook Festival de Télévision de Monte-Carlo)
