The Figures of an Increasingly Sustainable, Global and Engaging Competition

Press Release - July 12, 2023


Over 250 programmes in competition with an extraordinary participation of more than 80 broadcasters from all continents.

The International Juries already started their evaluation work, as the official call for entries for the Radio & Podcast, TV and Digital sections closed on last 26 June.

All the programmes submitted will now compete to get voted for the final, that will take place at the end of the 75th Prix Italia Festival, to be held in Bari from 2 to 6 October with the title "Engage Me".

In its 75th anniversary, the Prix Italia continues to offer a unique panorama of quality productions, "taking the pulse" of the trends and innovations of broadcasters from all over the world, and inevitably reflecting the zeitgeist and sentiment of an increasingly more globalised audience. As expected, the war topic is still very present this year, in the news stories and in the in-dept analysis of its social and cultural implications.

At the same time, the easing of the pandemic emergency has brought back a strong desire for sociality and culture - music, performing arts, innovation and entertainment are expressed as never before in the selection of productions received. Great attention to sustainability issues, both from the point of view of the productions and the topics covered, also thanks to the Prix Italia/Ifad/Copeam Special Prize, which this year attracted a particularly rich and diversified variety of programmes.


The word is now given to the jurors: more than 80 professionals and insiders from all over the world, selected by the participating broadcasters within the Prix community, will spend the summer evaluating and selecting the submitted productions, before meeting in person in Bari. There is a change this year in the selection of shortlisted programmes: 3 finalists for each category, which will be published at the beginning of September and will be available for the audience to watch and listen to during the week of the event.

The finalist productions will be presented and reviewed during the festival, and the jurors will choose the winners only at the end of a discussion open to all, with the producers, directors, protagonists of the programmes, with the challenge of bringing together international excellence and to appeal to the general public.


"The figures of this 75th edition tell us about a Competition that has been able to renew itself by becoming ever more global, topical and engaging. Our Festival – as the Secretary General of the Prix Italia Chiara Longo Bifano explains - was also chosen by Rai as a pilot project for the production of ESG sustainable live events, starting a process to progressively reduce the impact on the environment, in symbiosis with the gorgeous territory of Puglia". A project already represented in the updated k-visual: the olive tree, symbol of the land that hosts the Prix Italia, of the international community that constitutes its lifeblood and feeds its connections, and of the future of the planet. 75 like the years of the Prix and also the Constitution of the Italian Republic. A number that becomes a QR-code to embrace innovation, to be paper-free and make the program and information of this edition, full of previews and surprises, easily accessible to all.




About the Prix Italia Competition

The Competition.

The Prix Italia Competition is open to all broadcaster organisations, both private and public service. If you have never competed in the Prix Italia before, you should fill out a new competitor form first (see below).

The Competition is divided into three sections: for Radio & Podcast; for Television; for Digital projects. Each section is divided into three categories, as follows:

  • Radio & Podcast: Music / Drama / Documentary and Reportage
  • TV: Performing Arts / Drama / Documentary
  • Digital: Factual / Fiction / Interactive


The Special Prizes.

The Prix Italia awards each year a prize for each of the categories listed above (9 prizes). In addition, this year two Special Prizes will be awarded by selected Juries:

  • Special Prize in Honour of the President of the Italian Republic
  • Prix Italia-IFAD-Co.Pe.A.M. Special Prize on Sustainability

The prize in Honour of the President of the Italian Republic will be awarded among the programmes submitted in the categories listed above.

The Prix Italia-IFAD-Co.Pe.A.M. Special Prize will be awarded among the programmes submitted specifically for this prize.
Sustainability is the broad topic of the prize: the submitted programme should be about "how a sustainable development, integrating renewable energy, advanced technologies, sustainable use of resources, respect for biodiversity and equal access to the same resources, without any kind of discrimination, is a key element not only to reduce rural poverty and malnutrition, but also to enhance global food security, transforming today's food systems and thus fostering an inclusive and sustainable economic growth".


Number of programmes that may be submitted.

Each competing organisation may submit a maximum of one programme for each of the nine categories listed above.

Furthermore, you may submit one programme to the Prix Italia-IFAD-Co.Pe.A.M. Special Prize, provided it is not already competing in the other categories.

Programmes must have been released no earlier than January 1, 2022 or scheduled for broadcast no later than 31 December 2024.



The Juries of the Prix Italia competition are made up of delegates from the competing organisations. Each competitor may delegate one Juror for each of the 3 main sections of the competition (Radio & Podcast; TV; Digital).
The Special Prizes' Juries are composed of experts selected by the Prix Italia.

Newly registered organisations may delegate their Jurors too. We will update the Jury outline to include the new entrants.

Make sure to read carefully our Regulations (Art. 10) to learn about the Juries' proceedings. Also, note that our General Regulations (art. 5.4) states that "if Jurors are somewhat involved in the production of a programme, they cannot be part of the Jury that is asked to vote on it".
