The 18th Annual Televisual Bulldog Award Winners are in the final throes of voting. The awards range across drama, factual entertainment, documentary and sport, amongst other categories and are held annually in the UK. Voters get a chance to be entered in a draw to win one of three luxury Fortnum and Mason hampers. In addition, the winners of the awards will be celebrated in a special Inspiration supplement in the Winter issue of Televisual.
What makes the Televisual Bulldog Awards so unique is that the UK production community chooses the winners. So everybody in the industry has a chance to give their thoughts and opinions on the awards. Hijack announces that three of the series/shows it supported have been nominated.
