But before we went into lockdown our juries had begun viewing shortlisted programmes and fortunately technology has allowed us to continue with the judging process for these much-sought-after industry awards. We hope everyone will join us online on June 11 to celebrate some amazing work from the Celtic nations and regions, and beyond, over the past year.”
