Focus on our master craftpersons
The Festival has always called upon skilled artisans to create the Festival Nymphs, which are awarded to the Competition winners and to the outstanding personalities who receive special awards.
Inspired by the Golden Nymph award, the Venetian master glassmaker Giancarlo Signoretto has been creating the Crystal Nymph since 2016: a trophy that is entirely handmade and a unique piece for each recipient. Giancarlo Signoretto has been working with glass since he was 14 years old. In his studio, he collaborates with artists from around the world to bring these true works of art to life.
The Mylord company, based in Monaco, is in charge of the design of the Honorary Golden Nymph. Once moulded, the Fonderie de Bronze Lauragaise hands it over to the Mylord company for silvering. Finally, Mr. Sbirazoli implements the finishing touches: the transformation of the support, the fixing for the Honorary Golden Nymph and finally cutting, engraving and gluing the plates.
Originally created by Prince Rainier III of Monaco, and now under the Honorary Presidency of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, the Monte-Carlo Television Festival has become the The Not-to-be-Missed TV event for the entire television industry.
