Rockie Awards Eligibility

  • The entry was transmitted, for the first time anywhere in the world, during the 2004 or 2005 calendar year OR it will be a completed production available for first transmission by February 24, 2005. (Transmission includes network or local telecast, as well as transmission on cable, satellite, conventional delivery systems and webcast.)
  • The entry had only limited theatrical release, or no theatrical release whatsoever, prior to its first transmission.
  • While the Festival accepts multiple submissions, participants are reminded that only a portion of the many programs entered in the Festival are chosen as award nominees to be presented to the Festival's International Jury.
  • To avoid duplication of identical entries, we ask that co-production partners confer to decide which organization will be the entrant.
  • Programs submitted to this competition in any previous year are not eligible, with the exception of new episodes of series.


English and French are on an absolutely equal footing with respect to the selection and adjudication of award nominees. Entries in the competition must be in the English or French language, or must have English or French subtitles. For marketing purposes, however, entrants may prefer to send English subtitled versions of programs produced in other languages.
