VLV Awards for Excellence in Broadcasting

Now in their 27th year, the VLV Awards are nominated and voted for by VLV members and acknowledge excellence in public service broadcasting in the UK. 

Nominations for programmes broadcast in 2018

The VLV Awards for Excellence 2018 will be announced on May 9th 2019 at the VLV’s Spring Conference.

We hope you all enjoy programmes over Christmas but please remember that nominations for the VLV Awards for Excellence in Broadcasting 2018 should be sent in by Friday 11 January either by email or post. You can download the forms below. 

In addition to the usual categories, Arqiva are once again sponsoring the award for Best Sports Programme and the VLV Innovation Award, and IBT are sponsoring the award for International Content. We are grateful to both these organisations for their continued support.

The VLV awards celebrate the contribution made by high-quality public service programmes and presenters. For the television awards in particular we are keen that a wide range of broadcasters should be nominated, and we encourage members, perhaps also consulting family and friends, to nominate programmes from at least three broadcasters where possible.

The awards are unique in giving a voice to our membership, something greatly valued by those who win them.
