'Romeo and Juliet', one of the best known theatre plays of all time, has been staged, restaged, and reinvented countless times. Yet, the Golden Prague jury deemed a rendition created by Director Simon Godwin impressive to an extent deserving the award of the Grand Prix. Chaired by British television director Brian Large, the five-member jury consisting of Daniel Celarec (RTV Slovenija), Martin Glaser (National Theatre Brno), Natalie Gomez (Auditorium Films) and Emelie de Jong (ARTE France) praised the production particularly for outstanding scenes filmed by handheld camera, which provide the spectator with powerful, dramatic imagery depicting striking beauty.

Other awardees of the 58th edition of the international television festival include a recording of the Czech Philharmonic's concert featuring Jakub Hrůša and Lisa Batiashvili and the Polish documentary Agonia. Another Czech Crystal was awarded to Austrian creators for the opera 'The Fiery Angel'. 'The Dying Swans Project' produced by the 3sat public television channel received two awards – the Dagmar and Václav Havel Foundation VIZE 97 Award and a Special Mention for Extraordinary Artistic Achievement. Another production that was awarded a Special Mention for Extraordinary Artistic Achievement is the opera 'White Rose'. The Czech Television Prize was awarded to 'Janine Jansen: Falling for Stradivari'.

This year's EBU – IMZ Outstanding Achievement Award was bestowed on American theater director Peter Sellars to whom IMZ President Arild Erikstad refers to as "one of the most outstanding and influential artists of our time".
