Vlaamse Televisie Sterren

The Vlaamse Televisie Sterren (Dutch for "Flemish Television Stars") are Flemish television awards, in fifteen categories. Winners are announced during an annual television show called Night of the Flemish Television Stars (Dutch: Nacht van de Vlaamse Televisie Sterren), which is an Oscar-style gala organised by the Flemish Television Academy (Vlaamse Televisie Academie). Each year categories are evaluated and adapted to the ever-changing trends of television if needed.

Every ceremony is aired on television. The rights to the ceremony are shared by the two leading television stations in Flanders: public television station Eén and commercial station vtm. The show is co-hosted, but broadcast by only one of the two aforementioned channels in turn. The most recent ceremony was held on the second of March 2013 and aired by vtm. Night of the Flemish Television Stars first aired in 2008 and is a follow up to Het Gala van het Gouden Oog (Gala of the Golden Eye), which was last broadcast in 1998.

Voting procedureEdit
