Record-breaking number of entries for #sandford2017
The 2017 Sandford St Martin Awards have attracted an unprecedented 178 entries - more than twice as many as there were in 2010 and a 25% increase on last year.
Anna McNamee, the Trust's Executive Secretary said "While it's very pleasing to have had so many programmes enter this year, what's even more gratifying is the high quality and broad range of entries. The Sandford 2017 Judges are going to have a real challenge on their hands as it's made for what will be a very tough and, I'm guessing, a very tight competition."
Thank you and best of luck to everyone who entered.
Winners will be announced at Lambeth Palace on Wednesday June 7th.
