Visionary Arts Awards

Visionary Arts Awards 2024

The winners of the fifth annual Visionary Arts Awards will be announced online on the 31st March 2024.

The Visionary Arts Awards are the UK’s only awards show dedicated to celebrating social impact through popular culture and the arts, including celebrities, influencers and community workers who have inspired change.

From diversity and inclusion, to mental health awareness and the climate crisis, the Visionary Arts Awards showcases that people can create a positive change through film, television, music, literature, podcasts, theatre and their social media platforms.

Spanning across culture, media and entertainment, The Visionary Arts Awards is not just about rewarding talent, but primarily about highlighting the social impact their work has had and the stories that have been told.

Founder of the awards, musical theatre Producer, Adrian Grant commented:

 “The Visionary Arts Awards celebrate the amazing work of creators across the arts, activists and community workers who are using their talent and platforms to make a difference. We highlight the people who have produced work with social impact at the heart of the creative process and tell inspirational stories at a time when the world seems most divided. Through our foundation we empower the next generation of creators to use their platforms to highlight a variety of social injustices around the world and bring about change.”

This year there are six award categories, which have a shortlist drawn up by a panel of judges made up of leading authors, journalists, critics, writers, editors, producers and activists. The shortlist is then put to the public, who can vote for the person or work they feel has made the greatest social impact.

The award categories are –

  1. Book of the Year
  2. Play/Musical of the Year
  3. Documentary of the Year
  4. Television Show of the Year
  5. Film of the Year
  6. Song of the Year

From books that are breaking down mental health stigmas, to television shows inspiring self-love and positivity, films and documentaries that ignite and inspire generations to come to theatre shows about male bonding and group therapy to songs that are brimming with hope and a social message to be heard – these awards offer a vital platform for underrepresented voices that are having a cultural impact in the UK today.
