All3Media International to Represent Earthshot Prize Ceremony


All3Media International has taken on tape sales, outside of co-production territories, for the third Earthshot Prize Awards, which are taking place in Singapore on November 7.

Hosted by actor Hannah Waddingham, the ceremony will see Academy Award-winning actor and Earthshot Prize council member Cate Blanchett, actor Lana Condor, wildlife conservationist Robert Irwin and actor and humanitarian Nomzamo Mbatha announce the winners, who will each be awarded £1 million to accelerate their positive impact.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be hosting this year’s Earthshot Prize Awards in Singapore,” Waddingham said. “The work of the 2023 Prize finalists is a hopeful reminder of the power of optimism, innovation and human ingenuity. It is an enormous honor to be joining forces with the Prince of Wales for this exciting evening and to play a part in sharing the finalists’ inspiring stories and solutions with the world.”

Blanchett said, “The Earthshot Prize is, again, highlighting and incentivizing courageous, progressive and inventive solutions that can be rapidly upscaled. We don’t have time for inaction and despair, and the incredible climate solutions from around the globe are cause for genuine hope. The climate solutions showcased by the prize are wildly exciting—exciting because they are so simple, so possible and so inevitable. The solutions are game-changing, and like all truly game-changing ideas, they have a strange ‘how could we not have thought and implemented this before?!’ quality. I am proud to be a small part of unveiling the winners.”

The broadcast will also feature performances from Bastille, OneRepublic and more. The Singaporean choral society, Voices of Singapore, will participate in a special performance.

HRH The Prince of Wales will deliver remarks to celebrate the work of this year’s finalists and offer a message of hope and optimism.

The ceremony, produced by Studio Silverback, will be broadcast on BBC in the U.K.; PBS in the U.S.; various MultiChoice channels across Africa; Mediacorp’s Channel 5, mewatch and Mediacorp YouTube Entertainment Channel in Singapore; and on The Earthshot Prize’s YouTube channel in other territories.

“As The Earthshot Prize continues to identify the most promising climate and environmental solutions to repair our planet within the decade, I am amazed each year by the support of our friends and partners around the world, including BBC, PBS, MultiChoice and the performers and presenters who help us tell the stories of our finalists,” said Hannah Jones, CEO of The Earthshot Prize. “This global spotlight on our finalists is critical to grow their impact on our climate and environment. We are thrilled to bring these hopeful stories to audiences around the world from Singapore, an exciting and inspiring global hub for both entertainment and sustainability.”

Jack Bootle, head of commissioning for specialist factual at BBC, said, “I’m delighted that we are once again bringing The Earthshot Prize to British viewers. Last year’s ceremony was an incredibly inspiring celebration of hope and human ingenuity, and I’m sure that this year’s, featuring performances from some of the world’s most exciting musical artists, will be every bit as spectacular. This is a really important opportunity to showcase the creativity and innovation of those developing solutions to some of our most pressing environmental problems.”

“Highlighting solutions for a fast-changing planet is a priority for us at PBS,” commented Paula Kerger, president and CEO at PBS. “We’re very proud to partner with The Earthshot Prize for the second year in a row and to help share stories of hope and inspiration with our audiences.”

Imtiaz Patel, MultiChoice Group’s chairman, added, “As Africa’s largest entertainment company, we take immense pride in our partnership with The Earthshot Prize. With our extensive reach across more than 50 countries and millions of households, we recognize the profound impact we can make. This collaboration empowers us not only to educate communities about climate change but also to inspire innovators, rally fellow corporates and motivate governments to prioritize climate action in their national agendas. Together, we’re lighting the way toward a sustainable future for Africa.”
