2017 shortlist coming soon!

The deadline has now passed for entering this year's Mind Media Awards.

Once this year’s shortlist has been announced in September, our judging panel, made up of media professionals who are often former MMA winners and nominees or who have personal experience, will pick this year’s winners.

The Mind Media Awards celebrate the best portrayals and reporting of mental health in TV, film, radio, print and digital media. There are 11 categories covering everything from TV soaps and dramas, to more factual news and current affairs, as well as journalist and digital champion of the year.

The Mind Media Awards ceremony will take place on Monday 13th November 2017 at the ODEON in Leicester Square.

Loose Women's 'Lighten the Load Hero'

This year Mind and ITV’s Loose Women have come together to launch The Lighten the Load Hero award. This is a special new award which will celebrate the everyday heroes who support those of us living with mental health problems.

Nominations are now closed and the winner is due to be announced at this year’s Mind Media Awards ceremony.

Last year's Awards

Last year's winners were announced in a ceremony at The Troxy on Monday 14 November 2016 that brought together celebrities, industry professionals and people who have shared their personal experiences of mental health problems in the media.

Cricketing legend Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff MBE hosted the evening with guests including Paul Whitehouse, Grayson Perry and Alastair Campbell. Afterwards Freddie said: "It’s been an amazing honour to host the Mind Media Awards, particularly because of the massive amount of inspirational and touching work we’ve seen this year."

Congratulations to all the 2016 winners and nominees, who through compelling, honest and well-crafted work made a contribution to changing attitudes and tackling mental health stigma. And a special thank-you to our sponsors for making it all possible.
