The Eurovision Creative Forum showcases the most innovative and engaging programme formats from public service content (PSM) from Europe and beyond. It is also an opportunity to meet the creators and producers to learn more about the formats and share experiences in a friendly atmosphere.

The Forum was launched in 2006 as an opportunity for Members  to screen and showcase innovative and recent programme formats; to pool their creative potential and establish an international PSM format network.

Since then, the event has increased in popularity and the creation of new categories highlights the importance winning formats play in creating balanced programming.

The Forum is also open to PSM outside Europe, including Asia, Canada and the USA and is organized by Eurovision TV in cooperation with ZDF, Germany, with the support of the Eurovision Formats Core Group.
