GRAND PRIX AWARD FOR ‘MAKE BELGIUM GREAT AGAIN’
‘Make Belgium Great Again,’ distributed by Be-Entertainment, has once again scored an international award. The VTM program, based on a format created and produced by FC Panache, was crowned with the prestigious Grand Prix Award, the most important World Media Festival prize, in the Entertainment category.
Last month it was announced that ‘Make Belgium Great Again,’ just as ‘Did You Get the Message?’ and ‘Studio Tarara,’ won gold in their respective categories: Entertainment: Continuing Series & Serial Programmes’, Comedy and Miniseries. ‘Make Belgium Great Again’ has now gone on to capture the top prize.
The World Media Festival in Hamburg crowns the best international productions from all branches of the media. Each year, hundreds of productions are submitted by a jury of leading communication professionals from all over the world.
The World Media Festival’s Grand Prix Award marks yet another top recognition for the program that sees a group of TV makers attempt to make Belgium a better place. Last fall the program debuted on VTM in Belgium, where it created tremendous success on all levels from high market shares, online viewing numbers, press attention, social media interaction, success of its missions and broad recognition from the industry thanks to its several award wins. VTM recommissioned the show and a second series will air in the fall of 2019.
In addition to the original Belgian series, 3 other local versions of ‘Make Your Country Great Again’ are currently in production internationally.
