2021 Sandford St Trustees’ Awards
The Sandford St Martin Trustees’ Awards celebrate individuals, organisations or programmes that have made outstanding contributions to the public understanding of religion, ethics or spirituality through broadcasting.
For 2021 the Trustees decided they’d like to pay tribute to the exceptional work done by so many broadcasters and content-makers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. After a long deliberation, from the many inspiring and innovative entries and nominations received, the Trustees chose four which they feel exemplify the power great broadcasting has to impact and inspire even in the most difficult of circumstances.
However, such was the quality of the work they reviewed, they have chosen to highly commend some others whose work they feel also demonstrates the innovation, resilience, determination and heart that has qualified the best broadcasting about religion and faith during these unprecedented times.
