Nominate your Hero of the Year today
The Sky Documentaries Grierson Hero of the Year Award, now in its third year, is accepting nominations!
Nominate your unsung hero by Friday, 15 September.
Celebrating unsung heroes working behind the scenes in documentary, the award recognises someone who has gone above and beyond and had a real impact on the industry in the last 12 months.
From runners who have gone the extra mile to save a shoot through to Line Producers or Execs who have lead their team through challenge after challenge, nominees can be at any stage of their career and work in any off-screen role in factual or documentary.
Nominations are completely free to make. You just need two references to back up your nomination and write up to 500 words on why your chosen nominee should be considered. The Grierson Trust’s Board of Trustees will then judge the nominations to decide the winner.
Deadline 5pm BST on Friday, 15 September.
The first gong in 2021 went to Production Manager, Serena Kennedy and last year’s award went to director, Clare Richards for her work promoting female directors in documentary via We Are Doc Women’s 50/50 Pledge.
Sarah Lee, The Talent Manager, Clare Richards, We Are Doc Women & Grierson Hero of the Year Award winner 2022, and Selena Rogan, Rogan Productions.
