GOLD: Prisoner and Budgerigar Judges Comments:
"I loved the way this feature took someone who is usually gold & silver marginalised by society (a prison inmate), and humanised him by letting him speak for himself. Simple but effective, and very moving."
Silver: A Christmas Robin
"A pleasant, easy listen, with great use of sound effects and outdoor recording that made you feel as if you were out in a field bird-watching. The way in which it combined a natural history lesson with the Christmas message and spiritual reflection is also commendable. Nice music too."
Gold: Bereavement Podcast
"Excellent piece - personal, moving and useful to others. Very honest and compelling. Fittingly simple, well written and nicely produced."
- A beautiful, moving and honest portrayal of lie after bereavement by Peter Hobbs
- Short podcast made for Clifton Cathedral as an introduction to visitors or new parishioners
"Another good piece from the Clifton Diocese - presented and packaged well with good quality audio. Excellent wide range of interesting voices - lay people and clergy. Good to hear the Catholic Church challenged on something like the environment and for the criticism to be positively received."
