World Screen is presenting the seventh annual Trendsetter Awards in partnership with MIPCOM, honoring RTÉ’s Dermot Horan, Walter Presents’ Jason Thorp, AMC Networks’ Aurelie de Troyer and SBS Broadcasting’s Rozan Hamaker.

The Trendsetter Awards honor the achievements of some of the world’s top programming executives. This year’s recipients are Horan, acting managing director of television at RTÉ; Thorp, co-founder and CEO of Global Series Network/Walter Presents; de Troyer, the VP of global acquisitions and co-productions at AMC Networks; and Hamaker, the head of acquisitions at SBS Broadcasting.

These executives will receive the Trendsetter Award at the end of the Acquisition Superpanel: What Do Programmers Want? session at MIPCOM on Wednesday, October 18. Taking place at the Grand Auditorium in the Palais, this must-attend panel will see the honorees discussing their programming strategies in conversation with Anna Carugati, World Screen’s group editorial director.
