The changing face of British broadcasting has been highlighted as several new players are nominated in fresh categories at this year’s Broadcast Digital Awards.
A host of new short-form categories have been introduced – Comedy, Documentary, Drama and Factual – with the likes of Snapchat, Vice and The Guardian all picking up nods.
The shortlists hand Vice UK and online publisher TrueTube.co.uk two nominations apiece in the new categories. True-Tube is also up for Best Original Web Channel, in a competitive field that includes Barcroft TV, BBC3, Beano Studios, History Hit and Mashed.
Among other non-traditional entries, The Guardian’s cricket doc Second Innings is up for Best Short Form Doc and Snapchat is nominated for its Avalon and Vertical
Networks-produced dating format Ghost Hunt, along with HuffPost UK’s The Chefs’ Chefs.
The ceremony, which takes place on 4 July at London’s The Brewery, will also feature separate categories for Long Form Comedy and Drama for the first time.
BBC3 dominates the Comedy list, with four nominations, including BBC Studios’ Bafta-winning This Country, while Sky Atlantic has three drama series up for the prize: World Productions’ Save Me, Kudos’ Tin Star and Vertigo/Neal Street’s Britannia.
Another Bafta winner, ITV Studios/Motion Content’s Love Island, is up for both Best Entertainment Programme and Best Digital Support for a Programme, where it will compete with BBC Studios’ Blue Planet II digital campaign, Channel 4’s Ackley Bridge Snapchat campaign, the Brit Awards, BBC4’s Contagion and Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother.
Last year’s winner in the coveted Channel of the Year category, BBC3, is nominated again, alongside BBC4, Comedy Central, E4, Sky Atlantic and Beano Studios, which is also up for Best Web Channel and Best Digital Children’s content.
