The New York Festivals Best TV and Film competition saw several thousand applications, out of which 724 finalists from 48 countries around the world were selected. The awards gala was held in Las Vegas, with SuperMemo World represented by Krzysztof Biedalak, CEO, and Alicja Jankowiak, editor-in-chief and executive producer.

Representatives of world’s famous film and TV production companies, such as CNN, HBO, BBC, ZDF, Deutsche Welle, France 5, Disney Channels, Al Jazeera America, to name just a few, attended the ceremony.
