Six decades ago, New York Festivals was founded in New York City, the epicentre of advertising and creative expression. It is a city of icons where creative legends are made, and excellence is prized.
New York festivals’ TV & Film Awards has honoured content in all lengths, genres and platforms and celebrates the exceptional and innovative content being created today on all continents. The competition’s 64-year legacy provides a showcase of outstanding work across all platforms, from broadcast to streaming. Its agenda is simple – to celebrate the achievements of the many talented men and women who make up the worldwide creative community.
The strategic partnership with NAB Show, now in its eleventh year, provides an opportunity to showcase the festival’s winners by having a gala at the premiere event for content professionals in the media, entertainment and technology ecosystem.
Embracing all aspects of the Television and Film industries, the categories mirror today’s global trends and encourage the next generation of storytellers by recognizing innovators in 14 Category Groups: News Programs, News Reports/Features, Sports Programs, Documentary, Entertainment Programs, Entertainment Specials, Program Crafts, Promotions/Station IDs & Opens, Promo/ID & Open Crafts, Streaming, Student, Films, Corporate Image, and Film Crafts.
The international competition crosses over regional, national, and continental boundaries to truly represent the very best in creative content and communications. Since 1990, New York Festivals TV & Film Awards has been an official member of the International Committee of Tourism Film Festivals (CIFFT) due to its categories dedicated to Tourism.

These submissions are of high quality and earn awards from our international Grand Jury of award-winning content creators whose expertise covers all disciplines and platforms”, said Rose Anderson, VP & Executive Director, New York Festivals.
The New York Festivals TV & Film Awards integrates the CIFFT Circuit alongside other 13 World’s Best Tourism Film Festivals, at the most prestigious awards and recognition initiative for the Travel Video Marketing Industry - The World’s Best Tourism Film Awards.
