After a very tough round of judging, CRN is delighted to be able to reveal the 2020 Channel Awards shortlist in full - see below.
The standard of entry was extremely high this year, with one category featuring over 30 entries - so to actually make the shortlist is a real feat in itself this year.
It has also been revealed today that the 2020 Channel Awards will be the first to be broadcast LIVE on the actual day of the awards - Thursday 12 November. Please see the related article that explains how it will work.
Carry on reading below to see the full 2020 shortlist. Congratulations to all those who made it - it really is an achievement in itself. And to all those that didn't make it this year, thanks for making the effort, and making the judges' decisions so difficult. We hope you will try again next year.
