UK titles including Happy Valley, River, Adele at the BBC and Episodes are amongst shows vying for the prestigious Rose D’Or Awards in Europe.


The European Broadcasting Union awards have also recognised their very own Eurovision Song Contest this year.

No Australian titles have made the cut this year, despite prominent nominees in the past.

Over 400 programmes from more than 130 broadcasters and production companies in 33 different countries were submitted.

“The response from across the entertainment world has been incredible,” said EBU Head of Television and Rose d’Or organiser Jeroen Depraetere. “With such high levels of creativity on show this year our juries have had a tough job selecting the nominees competing to win a Rose d’Or trophy in Berlin. The EBU is proud that once again the Rose d’Or Awards can provide a platform for the world’s best entertainment programme makers.”

  1. Happy Valley thoroughly deserves to win best drama series – Series 2 was exceptional.
    Absolutely compelling as was Sarah Lancashire as the lead character.
    The rest of the cast were excellent as well.
    Best show I have watched this year so far.
