MOSCOW, 10 APRIL — RT’s multimedia project #Romanovs100, RT America host Chris Hedges, and a promo for RT's World Cup coverage featuring José Mourinho were among RT’s nine wins—including 2 gold—at the prestigious New York Festivals.
#Romanovs100, the large-scale, cross-platform, multimedia project launched by RT to mark the centenary of the execution of the last Russian royal family, took gold in two categories: “Digital Special Event” and “Original Music”, beating entries by Voice of America and FOX Networks Group, respectively. #Romanovs100 also received two silvers and one bronze.
The promo for RT France’s “World Chessboard” won silver for “Graphic Design”, while the promo for the news and analysis program “El Zoom” on RT Spanish took bronze.
Also taking home bronze medals were RT’s promo for the World Cup, featuring José Mourinho and Russian ballerinas and athletes, and the Pulitzer-prize winning RT America host, Chris Hedges, for “Best Interview”.
RT is a multiple winner of the New York Festivals. In 2013, Julian Assange’s program on RT took home gold, and in 2014 the documentary film ‘Blood and Honor’ beat CNN’s entry for first prize. In 2015, RT was honored in four categories, and in 2017, a series of special reports by RT about war-torn Libya and the documentary film “H2wOe” about the water-shortage crisis in India both took home gold. Last year, RT’s project #1917LIVE, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the revolution in Russia, and an RT documentary about the life of children in war-torn Syria, took top prize.
