2019 Sandford St Martin Awards Shortlists
Congratulations to everyone who entered content for consideration in this year’s Sandford St Martin Awards competition. On behalf of all the Trust’s shortlisters I can tell you that this has been a particularly interesting year with a real range in both the themes or subject matter explored and the treatments used. We reviewed content concerning everything from guns, gangs and drill to new poetry inspired by the psalms to the legacy of The Troubles in the face of Brexit and assisted dying. Fortunately for us, some of these ‘tougher’ subjects were levied by sci-fi utopias, side-splitting humour and some truly brilliant cutting-edge dramas. To quote one of our shortlisters “it was really tough this year. There was so much of such high quality and so many more than six programmes I wanted to see included on the shortlist”.
Your work evidences how religious and ethical broadcasting in this country can be not just impactful, entertaining and educational but also how relevant and thought-provoking these themes can be for all sorts of audiences.
So while particular kudos go to those programmes shortlisted for an award and listed below, we’d like to congratulate and thank all of our entrants this year for making the job so enriching.
You can find out more about those shortlisted by clicking on the entry names. Winners will be announced at the 2019 Sandford St Martin Awards ceremony at Lambeth Palace on 13 June.
