Considering the importance of the topics and anticipating an overwhelming response from Television Programme Producers, the deadline for programme submission of the World TV Awards is now extended to Tuesday 1st April 2014, which will be the final deadline.
For 2014, the two World TV Awards categories are:
- Category Humanity for the Best TV Documentary on "Promoting Children's Rights"
- Category Science/Environment for the Best TV Programme on "Building Resilience to Climate Change"
The World TV Awards are open to all broadcasters in Asia, Pacific, Europe, Africa, and North & South America from public, private sector and freelance producers.
“The Prize” consists of US$ 5,000.00 cash, a trophy and a certificate presented by AIBD per Award category.
Winners will be presented with their Awards during the Asia Media Summit to be held in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on 6-8 May 2014, a global gathering of broadcasters.
Please note that the lenght of the Science/Environment programmes has been changed (maximum 60 minutes instead of 30 minutes)
