I have been travelling for the past few months, exploring new frontiers in Asia and the Pacific. While I’ve been gone, Escape from ISIS has won a number of prestigious awards.
In November, we were honoured to win Amnesty International’s award for Best Human Rights Documentary 2015. There’s a pic of the team up on stage.
The same month we won the Foreign Press Association of London’s award for Best TV Feature 2015.
In February, the film was recognised by the television industry with the 2016 Broadcast award for Best News & Current Affairs programme.
The same month, I was delighted to hear that we had won a prestigious Royal Television Society award for Best International Current Affairs film.
Finally, the Overseas Press Club of America also honoured the US version of the film with its award for Best International Reporting (broadcast) late in April.
It is a great honour to receive such accolades. Thanks to all the institutions involved – and thanks once again to the team who made the film what it is.
