Impressive Wins for Denmark and Finland

24/01/2020

Congratulations to our Nordic companies who have been recognised for nine awards across Denmark and Finland at this year's prestigious TV Prisen Awards and Kultainen Venla Awards.

Pineapple Entertainment picked up four awards including Best Character Driven Series, which went to Diamond Family; Zulu Awards 2019 won Best Event; Factual Creation went to Tinder Grannies, and Martin Brygmann won Entertainment Host of the Year!

The TV Prisen Awards also recognised Mastiff Denmark which took home Best Lifestyle Programme for Portrait Artist of The Year, Best Singer won Best Entertainment and Best Factual Entertainment went to Different Like Me.

Peter Hansen, CCO of Banijay Nordic said, In a time where viewers are searching for a spark of joy', we are very happy that the Banijay companies Pineapple Entertainment and Mastiff in Denmark managed to harvest an unbelievable seven awards at the Copenhagen Tv Festival this Saturday. Original shows as well as new takes on international formats convinced the jury to place their votes on these seven Banijay shows. The future belongs to warm-hearted innovations

There was also reason to celebrate in Finland as Banijay Finland won Best Reality Competition for Dancing With The Stars and Director of the year (Entertainment & Events) went to Jan-Aslak Leino at the Kultainen Venla awards.

Congratulations to everyone involved in these hit shows!
