The Prix Italia Competition is now officially open!
You may submit your entries and register your jury members from March 13 until June 7, 2023 14:00 CEST.
On this page you will find the Regulations and more useful information on how to participate. Here are a few highlights about this year's edition:
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:
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:
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".
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.
If this is your first time competing in the Prix Italia, fist of all: a warm Welcome to our big community!
You should first try filling in your data in our User Registration form. Check the "Broadcaster" drop-down list first: if you can't see the name of your organisation there, it means that your broadcaster has never competed in the past.
In this case, the Broadcaster Registration form is your starting point instead.
In the Broadcaster Registration form you may fill in both your organisation basic info, and your own personal data (thus saving you the time of filling in a User Registration form too).
In the lower part of the "Broadcaster" section, you may add the names of one or more "contacts" for your organisation: these should be Manager(s) of the relevant departments of your organisation (eg., the Head of International Relations), but they will not be assigned an account on our platform.
In the "New Contact Person" section of the form, you may fill in your own data and email. The Contact Persons will be given an account on the platform and are supposed to upload the programmes in competition. You will be able to register further Contact Persons, if needed, once you get your own account.
Whether you have filled out the User Registration or the Broadcaster Registration form, you will be emailed with a token to validate. After that, we will send you your access credentials (a "EPRIX###" account and a password).
From now then on you may access the main page of our platform to edit your data and upload and review your programmes in competition.
Please note: it is possible for a Contact Person to be also a Juror. However, in this case you have to register as a Juror too (see below), and you will have two different sets of credentials - one as a Contact Person, one as a Juror.
If you need assistance, please contact email@example.com.
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.
To register a Juror, fill in our online form.
A juror can register autonomously, without the need for intervention by a Contact Person of the competing organisation. Note that you will have to upload a jpeg headshot of yourself and a short presentation (10-15 lines will do) as a pdf/doc file.
You will also need to indicate in which section of the competition (Radio & Podcast; TV; Digital) you intend to be a Juror. The exact Jury you will be placed on depends on our Jury rotation outline, so that we have a balanced composition each year.
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".
Please note that, in an effort to facilitate your jurors' in-person participation, Prix Italia will cover the expenses for hotel accommodation (3 nights: check-in on October 4, check-out on October 7) for the first 30 jurors (no more than one representative for each organisation) who will confirm by Friday, April 14th their attendance.
Please read our Regulations first:
Then, register and upload your programmes on our online platform:
If you plan on registering as a Juror, see also our annual Jury outline to find out which Jury you'll be assigned to.
