Channel Awards 2020 - WINNERS!

After the winners were announced at the first ever Virtual CRN Awards last night, see who scooped the trophies this year in one of the closest-run competitions we have ever seen

Although the 2020 Channel Awards were slightly different than normal this year due to Covid-19 restrictions, the winners were announced in a slick Livecast awards ceremony hosted live by the brilliant Colin Murray and voiced by Alan Dedicoat.

The virtual ceremony was filled with humour, poignant moments and really highlighted the brilliance of the channel and all it has achieved in this most challenging of years through some cleverly crafted video documentaries.

A huge well done to all our 2020 winners, but also massive congratulations to all those on the shortlist this year. It really was a very difficult set of entries to judge due to the exceptional quality and everyone should be extremely proud of their acheivements this year.

We hope to see you all back in person next year! 

The Channel Awards programme will be available on demand shortly.
