There are three (3) rounds in the judging process.
The two (2) first rounds (regional & global) are undertaken by Preselection Committee members, each spring. The Preselection Committee, composed by industry professionals, has the duty to select between five (5) and ten (10) nominees in each category.
For the Fiction categories (TV Series & Long Fiction Program) the Preselection Committee is also in charge of selecting the actors and actresses for outstanding performances. Nominees are chosen amongst the actors and actresses registered during the submission of their corresponding program (their nomination is not automatic).
The final round of judging takes place onsite during the Monte-Carlo Television Festival, where 2 Official Juries (Fiction & News), composed of renown talent & industry leaders decide the winners in each category.
