Italy’s RAI, Viacom Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), Spain’s Movistar+, France Télévisions and Russia’s ТNТ Network are among the top finalists for the Promax Europe Awards 2019, the entertainment industry’s top prize for marketing and design.
Los Angeles-based Promax, the global entertainment marketing association, announced the finalists Wednesday.
Other companies earning multiple finalist nods include AMC Networks International Southern Europe, Sky Creative Agency, NBCUniversal International, ProSiebenSat.1 Creative Solutions and Fox Networks Group Europe.

Next week, Promax will reveal finalists for Europe Marketing Team and Agency of the Year. All winners will be announced live on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam.
Winners are chosen in a two-step process. In January, a first round of online judging determined the finalists. In the second round, which took place over two weeks in February, expert jury panels convened in Madrid, Munich, Copenhagen and Amsterdam to decide the winners.
The awards ceremony is the final event of Promax Europe 2019, an annual two-day summit at which Europe’s leading media companies and agencies gather for industry-leading insight, strategy, creativity and professional development.
Keynote speakers slated for Promax Europe 2019 include Denise Huth, executive producer of global fan-favorite television series The Walking Dead, and she will be joined by cast member Seth Gilliam who plays Father Gabriel. Groundbreaking designer Stefan Sagmeister also will be on stage.
