The objective being of course to make known all the new TV programs, to the public and to the press, but especially to win a prize, the famous Golden Nymph.

The poster for this occasion, majestic and traditional with the Prince couple looking with tenderness at the Golden Nymph. The background of the photo has been removed to highlight and pay tribute to this wonderful emblematic couple.
Why was this festival created? His Serene Highness Prince Rainier III, a pioneer in many fields, saw in the 1960s television as a means of expression to bring people together and bring culture and peace through programs.
