A new category, News Programme, has been added to the content and skills awards which showcase the production talent in the national regions and small nations in Europe. There are three new sponsoring public service media organisations.

RPO, the newly-formed regional news operator in The Netherlands, will support the new News Programme category bringing the total number of categories to 11 and the total value of the awards in cash, trophy and benefits to almost 45,000 euros.

The Grand Prix – the best of the best – is now sponsored by TVP Poland. NRK Norway, a second new sponsor, takes over TVP’s sponsorship of the category Most Original and Innovative. BNT Bulgaria is yet another new sponsor, taking over the category Europe.
