TBI has joined forces with sister publication Digital TV Europe on the event, and will host three award categories: Best Series Launch of the Year, Most Influential International Production Company and Most Influential Distributor.

These will recognise the standout programme launch, the top producer and the programme sales company that has stood out this year.

A panel of industry luminaries – including Fox UK’s Jeff Ford, Slingshot Media founder David Ellender and TalkTalk acquisitions head Will Ennett – will judge each of the categories and the shortlisted companies and individuals invited to a gala event in Cannes this October, on the eve of MIPCOM.

The winners and those shortlisted will also feature across both TBI and Digital TV Europe magazines and websites before and after the event.
