All submissions to PRIX EUROPA 2019 will be screened or listened to, checked and evaluated at least twice in written form. The evaluation will follow the parameters of the particular voting sheet for each category. This extensive full-time job is done by 12 independent experts who do not belong to any broadcaster and do not have an entry of their own.

This preselection procedure aims to offer an overview of European media production including established national, regional and local broadcasters as well as independent producers and fresh talents. It also aims to balance between new and traditional ways of communication, between topical subjects and personal stories to cover the basic trends of programming and a broad range of production styles.

The results of the preselection (list of nominations) will be published by 26 August 2019.
