Nominations are now open for The Production Guild of Great Britain Awards 2022.

The Awards, held in association with Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, feature six categories this year. In 2022, there will be separate awards for Film Production Team of the Year and High-End TV Production Team of the Year, and a new Diversity and Inclusion Champion Award.

Nominations can now be made by PGGB members until 26th November. The awards ceremony will take place on 26th March 2022 at The Grove in Hertfordshire.

A special Innovation edition of the biannual awards was held virtually in November 2020 to celebrate the innovative work of PGGB members who navigated new ways of working to keep UK production moving in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Production Guild of Great Britain (PGGB) Awards 2022 categories are:

  • The PGGB Film Production Team of the Year Award sponsored by Panalux, acknowledging PGGB members who have worked together across departments on a feature film production and who have achieved something remarkable in their work.
  • The PGGB High-End TV Production Team of the Year Award sponsored by Netflix, acknowledging PGGB members who have worked together across departments on a High-End TV production and who have achieved something remarkable in their work.
  • The PGGB Inspiration Award sponsored by BCD Media and Entertainment; acknowledging a PGGB member who has helped other members develop within their work and/or career by offering guidance, advice, support and inspiration.
  • The PGGB Diversity and Inclusion Champion Award sponsored by Equals Money, acknowledging the work of an individual or company to promote diversity and inclusion in film and High-End TV drama.
  • The PGGB Spotlight on New Talent Award sponsored by MBS Equipment Co., acknowledging a PGGB member who, in a junior role, has shown tenacity and ability, great support to their team and a willingness to learn.
  • The PGGB Contribution to the Industry Award sponsored by Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, acknowledging an individual or company that has made an outstanding contribution to the UK film and/or TV drama industry.

Eligible activity for the awards must have taken place between October 2018 and September 2021. Nominees for all awards (except the Contribution to the Industry category which is decided by the PGGB Board) must be PGGB members and can be from film or television drama working within the production office, accounts, locations, assistant directing, post production or VFX.

Once again the Awards will support the charity MAMA Youth Project, which works to equip young people aged 18-25 with the skills and experience to secure long-term, fulfilling employment in the TV and media industry, with particular focus on young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with limited educational or employment opportunities.
