The Visionary Honours

The Visionary Honours

The Annual Visionary Honours award show celebrates culture and people within the arts, media and entertainment world that have inspired social change and debate – from inclusion & diversity, equality and mental health to the climate crisis and anti-social behaviour/youth crime.

Due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic this year’s event was postponed and replaced by a virtual award ceremony held on the 6th May. It still however provided an inspirational and entertaining evening for all those watching from home during lockdown.

 

A shortlist was drawn up by a team of industry experts including authors, directors, journalists and Diversity Specialists, receiving over 15,000 votes from members of the public.

TV presenter Scarlette Douglas was host for the evening.
