The next EBU Connect conference will take place virtually on 4 May 2021 in the form of a one-day online event.

Programme details are still being worked out but some of the confirmed sessions will be communicated soon. Stay tuned!

ABOUT THE 2021 AWARDS: WHAT'S NEW

With a challenging year behind us and some tough times still ahead, recognizing your team’s work is more important than ever.

The EBU Connect Awards will this year once again showcase excellence among peers by awarding the Best Promos and Campaigns of 2020!

CATEGORIES

This year's competition is open for entries in 13 categories plus an additional “Special COVID-19” category: This new one will welcome any pieces (spots or campaigns) aimed at informing, educating but also entertaining the public during the pandemic.

WINNERS ANNOUNCEMENT

2021 Winners will be unveiled through a two-phase process: Silver Winners will be revealed prior to the online event at the end of April, while the Gold winners will be announced during the Awards session on 4 May (there will be also a recap on the Silver Winners revealed in April).

2021 winners will be showcased across EBU’s channels, bringing winning work to more people than ever before.

ONLINE VOTING

The online voting will be only open to participants registered for EBU Connect 2021 and those who submitted entries on the EBU showcase platform. Eligible voters won't be allowed to vote for a production of their own organization.
