The Diversify TV Excellence Awards were created in order to recognise, champion and celebrate diversity, equality and inclusion in television programming from around the world.

The winners of each award are judged by charities and organisations that advocate for minority groups and therefore have a deep understanding of the challenges and issues these groups face.
