RT’s #Romanovs100 wins big at New York Festivals TV & Film Awards
#Romanovs100 won two golds for “Best Original Music” & “Best Digital Special event,” silver in “Camerawork” and “Art Direction,” and bronze in “Video Art & Experimental Film” for a VR animated music video this week.

The award-winning history project about Russia’s last reigning royal family, the Romanovs, has been making headlines this past month as it gathers prestigious awards worldwide.

Just last week it was announced that #Romanovs100 was in the finals of the world’s oldest awards for design, marketing and advertising – the ADC Awards. The project is also shortlisted for a New York Festivals Advertising award where finalists will be announced on April 22nd.

Founded in 2005, New York Festivals TV & Film Awards honours content in all lengths and forms from over 50 countries. Embracing all aspects of the television and film industries, categories mirror today’s global trends and encourage the next generation of storytellers and talent.

#Romanovs100 is currently also up for a Webby in the "Best photography and graphics" category. With an ongoing open vote, you can help the digital photo-narrative make history by voting HERE. So far, the project holds 11 awards, including Clio Entertainment, The Drum Social Buzz, and PromaxBDA accolades.

RT won four more categories: RT France’s promo for "World Chessboard" took silver in "Graphic Design", while the promo for the news and analysis program "El Zoom" on RT Spanish took bronze.

Also taking home bronze, 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”.
