Entertainment's international awards ceremony The Rose d'or has opened to entries and will feature the broadest ever range of media platforms, including online video, radio and television.

The timing of the event has also shifted as the awards ceremony, which is open to both public service and commercial media, will take place in Berlin on 17 September coinciding with the EBU Member convention, the Eurovision Creative Forum.

Following its relaunch by Eurovision, operated by the European Broadcasting Union, the event last year attracted a record 320 entries.

According to director Annika Nyberg Frankenhaeuser, the additional category was introduced to reflect the shift towards providing consumers with access to content on multiple platforms.

"We talk about liquid content that flows across a variety of platforms. It's time to recognise the best of programming, whatever the platform. Everything from classic radio shows to new players, like Netflix and Amazon, will be welcome to compete for a Rose d'Or," she commented.

The seven categories showcasing originality, quality and creativity in television and online video broadcasts will include game show, reality and factual entertainment, sitcom, comedy, entertainment, arts and radio.

The deadline for submissions is 28 March 2014. Further details can be found at the Rose d'Or website.
Nominees will be announced on 19 May 2014.
