Rose d'Or trophies were presented in eleven categories including Comedy, Game Show, Arts and Talk Show following a record-breaking number of entries. Radio awards were included for the second time in the event's 54 year history.

EBU Members BBC (UK), NPO (The Netherlands) and Channel 4 (UK) were all recognised.

British actor Stephen Fry was honoured with a lifetime achievement award for his outstanding contribution to the entertainment industry.

Speaking on programme making after receiving the award for lifetime achievement, Fry noted that: "the real truth about broadcasting is that it's about making the best programmes and those are to do with individuals, characters and emotions." Underlining how the entertainment industry is about people and stories, he went on to note that: "it's not technology that tells stories, it's human beings."

Fry won a Rose d'Or Award in 2006 for "Best Game Show Host" in the BBC series QI.

The ceremony, which was attended by around 200 industry luminaries, was hosted by BBC presenter Paddy O'Connell.

EBU Media Director Jean Philip de Tender highlighted the quality of 2015's nominees. "This year's range, depth and quality of nominees was truly outstanding.  That the Rose d'Or can attract such high quality submissions is testament to its importance in the industry.  I congratulate all the winners - and all the runners up.  The jury's job was hard."

The nominations were announced in November 2015, with the jury selecting a shortlist for the three best programmes in each of the eleven categories in television and radio competing for a Rose d'Or.

The Rose d'Or Awards are one of the world's most prestigious awards for entertainment programming.  It is a Eurovision and Euroradio event, operated by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).
