Grierson Hero of the Year Award.

News in from The Grierson Trust:

For the second year running, we are presenting a Hero of the Year Award – sponsored by The Talent Manager – which seeks to highlight the unsung talent of documentary and factual TV.

The deadline for nominations for this award has now been extended to 12 September. Nominations are free and can be made for anyone matching the below criteria:

  • They should have contributed behind-the-scenes to the factual and/or documentary industry – whether their impact is wide reaching or on a day-to-day level with their colleagues. They can be at any level of their career from new starters to established execs and further afield 
  • The work they are nominated for should have largely taken place between June 2021 and May 2022 (the same eligibility period as the films submitted to the Griersons)

Also known as the Griersons, or Grierson Awards, the British Documentary Awards celebrate excellence across a variety of documentary genres and are a key date in documentary and factual filmmakers’ calendars. You can find out more information here.
