Broadcast Digital Awards 2016

Shortlist 2016

The judges have spoken! After watching hours of footage, pouring over stacks of viewing figures and comparing reams and reams of social #content, we locked our judges away to debate who has produced the very best work in broadcast and digital over the past year. Below is the full shortlist of programmes, producers and channels for 2016. In a year of incredible entries our judges were faced with some tough decisions, so a huge congratulations to everyone who has made the list and we’ll see you on 29 June!
