Ian Rumsey – ITN

Michael Palin told me it was one of the best organised and therefore most enjoyable events he’s been to in a while.

Jason Loftus – Lofty Sky Entertainment

Thank you for all your efforts to make such a successful and memorable AIBs this year. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening, and am humbled by the honour for best historical documentary.

Arja Haikonen – BBC

It was amazing…we won again.

We got the news 1605 just a minute before Nuala started a live broadcast from Glasgow.

That was exciting, I think her guests thought she was a bit nuts!


Diane Macpherson – Kagiso Media

thank you so much for an amazing evening – and congratulations on the event. We felt like winners just being in London and amongst such a wonderfully talented group of colleagues.

Gabinete de Presidencia – Agencia EFE

Many thanks to all of you on behalf of our president Gabriela. We really enjoyed the programs. It has been a true honor to participate in these awards and we have always felt very welcome.

Judges comments

The Confession – ITN Productions for Amazon Prime Video

A very high production value.

From the opening graphics, the music, the credits, to the actors and dramatic reenactments, this docudrama to me, is the epitome of an excellent docudrama.

The Cult of Conspiracy: QAnon – Zandland Films for Channel 4

Absolutely fascinating journey into the dark world of conspiracies in which fragile people are exploited.

Saudi Arabia Wields Cinema as a Tool of Soft Power – France 24

Outstanding, comprehensive, exposing the contrast of opening and tyranny, opportunities and despotic rule. Excellent script, visuals and characters that tell a story of struggle.
