In addition to the highly coveted Nymph awards, the upcoming Monte Carlo Television Festival will be handing out Special Prizes in collaboration with AMADE, the ICRC, the Monaco Red Cross and SIGNIS.
Judged by expert international juries, the winners of the renowned Special Prizes are selected from a diverse array of entries received from across the globe.
The AMADE Prize, awarded to a television program that explores a contemporary human issue, will go to the French documentary ‘Yémen : Les Enfants et la Guerre’ (Yemen: Kids and War).
Rewarding a documentary that highlights a principle of international humanitarian law, the Press Prize of the ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross) also goes to ‘Yémen : Les Enfants et la Guerre’ (Yemen: Kids and War).
The English Television film ‘Care’, produced by LA Productions Ltd, will receive the Prize of the Monaco Red Cross, recognising a fiction program that demonstrates the fundamental principles of the Red Cross.
The SIGNIS Prize, the Silver Dove, which highlights and promotes productions that use artistic and technical talent to create inspiring content that encourages reflection, will go to the German Television film ‘Fremder Feind’ (War), produced by Schiwago Film.
In addition, during the Golden Nymphs’ closing ceremony, H.S.H. Prince Albert II will award the Special Prize of Prince Rainier III to a program competing in the news category.
This prize, in honour of the festival’s founder, is awarded to the best programme dealing with nature conservation, the environment, the protection of threatened fauna and flora and the fight against pollution.
This year, the documentaries ‘Drowning In Plastic’ (Raw Tv – United Kingdom) and ‘Klatwa Obfitosci’ (Kruppa Galery – Poland) are nominated for this award.
The Monte Carlo Television Festival runs from 14th to 18th June.
National Council President Stéphane Valeri has visited the Grimaldi Forum to thank the team behind the screening campaign, while also encouraging more people to take the Covid-19 antibody test.
Prince Albert has been tested at a Covid-19 screening centre in Monaco to raise awareness about the government’s campaign to have as many people of the Principality tested as possible.
Monaco’s primary students made their return to school on Monday, the final group to do so in the government’s three-phase plan to lift the lockdown.
The Principality ordered some 11.5 million masks at the height of the crisis. Now those masks are being safely stored by the government for a rainy day.
