The Edinburgh TV Awards are now open for entry, with an exciting number of new categories,

In their 17th year, the highly-coveted awards form one of the highlights of the TV Festival calendar, bringing out the TV industry’s glitterati, as well as showcasing the outstanding talent, and incredible breadth of genres and creativity that broadcasters and production companies produce year after year.

This year the number of categories open for submissions have expanded allowing the TV festival the opportunity to recognise more genres and applaud the high-standard of originality.

Deadline for all entries is Friday 11 May



Our ever-popular Speed Meetings strand is getting a makeover for 2018!

Our brand new strand ConnectED will feature host profiles and wish-lists, interview clips, facts and stats that will make speed meetings easier to research, as well as more targeted.

Festival ticket-holders will be able to request speed meetings with the top UK and international commissioners, senior talent managers, distributors, media lawyers and global brands attending the Festival.

Meetings are available to delegates only, so buy your ticket first!
