The Eutelsat TV Awards 2013 are over and China Central Television (CCTV), the country’s state-owned national broadcaster, won the News section of the contest thanks to the CCTV News Channel. The annual competition is organized by Eutelsat, one of the biggest satellite operators in the world, and was held at the Molino Stucky Hilton Hotel in Venice. A multinational jury of ten members, representing the world's most dynamic broadcasting markets, presented the awards led by Duilio Giammaria of Rai Television. The award conferred upon CCTV News testifies to the effort of China’s main broadcaster in gaining international credibility to reach Chinese people worldwide via its channels abroad, such as CCTV News and CCTV 4. "We always look at the Chinese way of doing television because, as Europeans, we want to gain a better understanding of the country," said Giammaria. Other rewards went to Sky Arte (Italy) in the Documentary category, Auto Plus (Russia) for Lifestyle, Chérie 25 (France) for Fiction and Pmc (Arab Emirates) as the People’s Choice. Here is the complete list. The 16th edition of Eutelsat assigned 14 prizes called “Gea.” "Over 50% of the channels that won awards are in high definition and have been launched over the past 12 months," commented Michel De Rosen, Eutelsat Chairman and CEO, during the ceremony. The Eutelsat TV Awards is a unique event recognizing the quality of thematic satellite TV channels. Over 100 channels from 20 countries participated in this year's competition. Considerations made by the jury included the quality of content creation, innovative program packaging and how channels are leveraging technology to engage with their audience. English journalist Kate Silverton led the ceremony.
