Beside the official competition, every year PRIX ITALIA introduces a number of Special Prizes. Here is the list of the 2020 Special Prizes:
Once again this year, Prix Italia is awarding a Special Prize in Honour of the President of the Italian Republic. The prize will be assigned by a jury composed of internationally renowned personalities invited by Prix Italia.
The Secretariat organises for this Jury the online pre-listening and pre-screening of the Radio, TV and Web works which have already been selected by the official competition juries (21 Radio programmes, 21 TV programmes and 21 Web projects).
During the Festival itself the jury meets online in order to decide on the awarding of the prize to the programme featuring innovative language, which best expresses a radio, television or multimedia content of acknowledged cultural and artistic quality.
This year the Prix Italia welcomes a jury of students from the University of Cassino and Southern Lazio, University of Rome “Foro Italico”, Roma Tre University, Sapienza University of Rome, University of Rome Tor Vergata and University of Tuscia. The jury will award one of the 21 projects that have been shortlisted by the Web competition jury. The students will be able to evaluate the projects before the Prix Italia festival: they will meet in an online debate session, which will end with a final vote to elect the winner.
