“Heartstopper,” “Dodger” and “Race Around Britain” are among the shows nominated at this year’s Mipcom Diversify TV Awards.

The awards, which celebrate diversity and inclusion in television series and entertainment programmes around the world, will take place at the Palais des Festivals’ Grand Auditorium in Cannes next month on Oct. 19. They are organized in collaboration with Diversify.

International anchor and diversity advocate Femi Oke is set to host.

Last year’s winners included “It’s a Sin,” “Dreaming Whilst Black” and “Summer in Lockdown.”

“Our approach with DiversifyTV and the awards has been to elevate those already making an impact to inspire our industry internationally,” said Lucy Smith, director of Mipcom and MipJunior. “If nominated, that impact has been recognised not only by peers but by specialists and advocacy groups in the diversity and inclusion area, an extraordinary and meaningful accolade that also stands as an example of what’s possible in TV. I wish all nominees the very best of luck for what will be an inspirational event.”
