Every year since 2004, the TV Export Awards have recognized the world’s best-selling French TV programs.

The Awards highlights the appeal of French creation internationally in animation, documentary and fiction content. It also spotlights the professionalism and know-how of French distribution companies.

“We are delighted that our 2022 Awards ceremony is to be held in person once again – and that it is organized in partnership with PROCIREP” said Hervé Michel, Vice President of UniFrance, and Sarah Hemar, Deputy Executive Director of UniFrance in charge of Audiovisual and Digital. 

“We will gather in the evening of February 8 at the Trianon, in Paris – if the health crisis allows, of course – to celebrate both the professionalism of both our distribution companies and French TV production. Working together on the conception of programs and, within UniFrance, on their promotion, they enrich French TV content creation and extend its reach throughout the world”.
