The Tiger Awards Competition intends to give up-and-coming talent the opportunity to shine on a global stage instead of those that have already made a name for themselves.

The prestigious Tiger Awards Competition is the International Film Festival Rotterdam’s centrepiece. Hivos Tiger Award winners not only receive a trophy and €15,000, but they also gain international recognition. Even participating in the competition is a form of recognition. Just the fact that a production has been selected for the competition in Rotterdam guarantees the necessary international attention. In January 2012, some fifteen premieres competed for one of the three, identical Hivos Tiger Awards.
