On Wednesday Clifton Diocese Communication’s Officer, Phil Gibbons, Anne-Marie John and Angela Parry travelled to the BAFTA theatre in Piccadilly, London for the annual media and broadcasting Jerusalem awards.
Just after Easter, Phil accompanied group 176 to Lourdes as part of the HCPT pilgrimage. He made a 45 minute documentary which was shortlisted for the digital audio category at this year’s awards.
The Jerusalem Awards have been recognising high-quality Christian broadcasting for over 22 years. Entrants range from university students hosting programmes on local radio to Goggle-box-star Rev Kate Bottley’s short film about Christmas. All entrants have a passion and skill to increase understanding of Christianity and its values via broadcast media.
Unfortunately Clifton did not win, but Anne-Marie, who was one of the young people on the pilgrimage and in the original podcast, made a short recording of her evening at the awards which you can hear below.
The Catholic Bishop’s Conference won the category and you can read about that here
