This is the 60th year of the awards. The nominations were selected from over 750 entries, and the shortlists were decided by a jury of 150 broadcast executives and leading producers.

The organisers say: "The Rose d'Or began in 1961, when it was created by Swiss Television in the lakeside city of Montreux and has been a flagship event for the European Broadcasting Union and the international TV industry ever since. The prestigious Rose d'Or Awards define the gold standard for excellence and achievement in International TV and Audio programme making."

Mark Rowland, Chair of the 2021 judges, says "Despite the very considerable production challenges faced during the pandemic, we've seen an amazing breadth of subjects and creative treatments - with production standards higher than ever. Congratulations to all the nominees on an amazing achievement."

The winners will be announced in a virtual ceremony on 29th November, presented by Sue Perkins.
