NTRNZ media’s Head of Formats and Creative Partnerships, Tomi Suomela, joins the jury of International Format Awards 2024.

The International Format Awards are the leading awards for the global format business, recognising creativity and excellence across a range of categories. They are a co-production between leading players in the formats business; C21Media, FRAPA and EMC, in association with MIPFormats.

It has been an honor to serve as a jury member for several years now. It's fascinating to see the variety of formats that have been developed and successfully sold to networks and platforms around the world. It is also inspiring to witness the continuous development of new formats and to see some buyers having the courage to incorporate these new formats into their programming. It would be wonderful to see more Finnish expertise represented in the competition as well.
