Golden Beggar Award

The main prize of the Festival has already become a prestigeous award and proof of successful and creative work, highly valued by local television authors and creators. Recent years have also seen a growing significance gained by the Young Author and Production Company awards. The Golden Beggar has become an award which is a kind of a hallmark of high professional standards for young authors and independent producers.


The competition for Golden Beggars is divided into three sections:

  • Production Companies
  • Young Authors
  • Local Televisions.


Each category will have its Golden Beggar. Programs will be listed in seven categories – News and Investigative Reports, Documentary, Fiction, and Animation. In the 18th edition there will be three new categories -  media literacy projects , participatory projects and competition of extremely short films (XSF).
