 Voting for the BPG Awards 2017 (for programmes aired in 2016) begins on Monday January 23rd and closes on Friday January 27th at midnight.


You are invited to take part by voting on the online form

All paid-up members of the BPG are allowed one vote per Awards category; there are 12 TV Nominations categories to complete, including two that have write-in boxes: 

  • The write ins are for the BPG Innovation Award, which is for “innovation in broadcasting” – this awards a programme, a technology, or broadcaster breaking new ground in the broadcast arena. 
  • The second write-in category is for the BPG Harvey Lee Award, which is your suggestions for the outstanding contribution to broadcasting (lifetime achievement) award

Once you have clicked onto the voting section of the site, here’s how to vote: 

First, fill out your personal info details, then check the list of nominees for each award by clicking on the award titles on the right of the screen. After making your choice, type it into the relevant box on the voting form. 

(Editor’s tip: we encourage you to vote in every category. You can navigate between the lists and the voting form by either using the back button or opening up a second browser window with the lists in it). 

This year we have added a second list of Non-Public Service Broadcasters’ programmes to every TV nomination category. 

You are given one extra vote in each genre category for a Non-PSB programme or actor. We encourage you to vote in the Non-PSB lists.

For your vote to count, there are two things you must do:
