2021 BROADCASTERS DIRECTORY
Held in the early summer in Lambeth Palace, the Trust’s annual award ceremony has always been an opportunity for content-makers, commissioners and journalists and others interested in religious and ethical broadcasting to meet, mingle and share experience. For a second year, COVID restrictions have meant that our awards ceremony has taken place online. We’re missing all of you and so, in an attempt, to allow you to ‘meet’ and find out more about the wide range of talented content-makers who entered this year’s awards, we have developed our 2021 Broadcaster’s Directory : a comprehensive record of all the content-makers and their broadcast projects who entered this year’s competition. It’s not the same as meeting IRL but we hope it will inspire and energise you, nonetheless. Click here to meet the makers.
