The awards ceremony will take place on 22 September.

A total of 289 submissions from 40 countries resulted in a shortlist of 50 media entries drawn up by an international jury. The 18 nominees were divided into 6 groups:

  3. “Serious entertainment”: multimedia products that are not only funny and entertaining but also convey a very important message
  4. Short films
  5. Tell me a story
