Dear BPG Member,
As is our practice, we are posting the 12 TV Nomination Category Lists for the outstanding programmes in the Awards Year (2014) for you to vote on in the first round of voting.
The programmes on the lists have been chosen by our TV Nominations Committee of critics led by TV Nominations Chairman Jake Kanter and include programmes that were commissioned/produced in the UK and aired in calendar year 2014.
We also are soliciting your suggestions for the Innovation and Breakthrough Awards, which are decided by the Executive Committee. There are some choices already and also a write in box for these two lists.
Since 2006 the BPG Innovation Award has been given to recognise original thinking across programming, production and technology. This year we decided that the Innovation Award will be dedicated to digital-first, online programmes to recognise the burgeoning growth in this sector. You can see the criteria here:
The Breakthrough Award recognises an individual performer who has ‘broken through’ to the big time in the year in question.
You can navigate to each individual list using the links on the right of this page.
Voting begins January 19th and lasts for one week for Round One. First Round voting will end Friday January 23 and the final Voting round will begin Monday January 26 and end on January 30th.
Please also mark your diaries for March 13, 2015, the date of the BPG Awards Lunch. Ticket applications will be made available in a few weeks – watch for the email.
Thanks very much for voting!
BPG Awards Secretary
