By way of recognising the extraordinary industry response to the Coronavirus crisis and celebrating the innovation and creativity unleashed by such unprecedented times, there will also be two new, one-off awards – which are included as part of this year’s Edinburgh TV Awards.
The 2020 Industry Champion will be awarded to an individual or organisation who went above and beyond to help the UK TV industry in a time of adversity and heavily impacted by the Covid-19 crisis.
The Creativity in Crisis Award recognises the amazing content which is emerging at such a moment of crisis; stand out programming that has defied the odds and showcased creative brilliance.
The Creativity in Crisis award will be open to the general public for long list submissions and both winners will be chosen by the Festival’s advisory board, Scheme delegates and patrons.
