The AIBs 2020
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic we were unable to hold our live event in 2020. We instead put together a two part programme to celebrate the shortlisted programmes and to reward the winners and highly commended. Both programmes can be seen here together with our in conversation with Waad Al-Kateab.
We hope that next year will see a return to some sort of normality and that we will be able to hold our live event at Church House Westminster.
Until then stay safe and keep well – we look forward to seeing your work in the AIBs 2021 which open for entry on the 12 April 2021.
