Welcome to FRAPA

The leading association in TV format recognition and protection.

The mission of FRAPA – the Format Recognition and Protection Association – is, quite simply, to be the home of international format business by providing protection and information for producers, creators and distributors all over the world. Founded in 2000 at the “dawn” of the current reality television explosion, FRAPA came into being when formats grew from a boutique business into a global, multi-billion dollar industry responsible for many of the biggest entertainment brands on earth.
