It is important for SVT to compete in international TV festivals for our content to reach a broader and international audience but also to make sure our programmes measure up to global standards.
We proactively submit entries to the leading festivals in the world, for example iEmmy, Prix Europa, Banff Rockie Awards, IDFA and more. We also submit programmes to other festivals, in particular ones supporting democracy and human rights.
