The 2019 edition

TV touches countless viewers around the world – millions of entertaining, inspiring and informative stories, just waiting to be discovered, changing the viewers’ perception of the world. This is why this year’s edition focuses on the diversity of television content – great stories, available when and where they want, on a multitude of TV platforms, triggering their curiosity, interest and loyalty.

The topic of diversity also underlines the larger societal topic increasingly featured in TV programmes and advertising campaigns. In this broader meaning, with a range scope of diverse content, TV plays a powerful role as a force for good and contributes to a democratic society.

The three associations will produce a dedicated TV spot that will be broadcast by TV channels around the world.

On this occasion, we would like to thank all the broadcasters and production companies who provided footage for this years' clip.
