This year, 18 countries are represented by the 38 nominated programmes, which is clear evidence of the diverse nature of international productions. In the Fiction category, Europe has clearly marked its territory, although the United States, Canada and Australia are still present. In the News category, I also welcome the nomination of programmes from Iran, Malaysia and Qatar.
