In 2019, the inaugural Visionary Honours, founded by Thriller Live creator Adrian Grant, celebrated work that inspired social change in or debate about equality, diversity, inclusion, mental health, anti-social behaviour or environmental change.

For its second year, there will be a Visionary Awards ceremony in March and ten bursaries of up to £5,000 each for young creative artists.

This year’s panel includes the writer of hit West End musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Tom MacRae, who spoke to us about the awards and his involvement, as well as about how Jamie, soon to go on a world tour and be released as a film starring Richard E Grant, initially came about.

The Visionary Honours 2020 recipients will be announced on 18 March, with the shortlist to be announced on 4 February.
