BASE Awards 2024: Shortlist Announced!


Friday 5th July 2024: The British Association for Screen Entertainment (BASE) has released the shortlist for the 44th BASE Awards. The winners will be announced during the ceremony held on 25th September at the Camden Roundhouse.

36 companies are shortlisted across 35 categories for this year’s BASE Awards, as we celebrate and recognise the outstanding performance of teams and individuals across retail, distribution, and creative agencies in Home Entertainment.

2024 has seen record numbers of entries leading to the widest representation of entrants to date.

2024 sees the return of last year’s categories with two new additions: Best in Class: Blu-ray 4K, and The DEGI Hedy Lamarr Awards for Inspirational Women in Entertainment: Leader, and Rising Star. (Note: Hedy Lamarr Awards shortlist will be announced shortly.)

The People’s Choice Award also returns: ‘Hidden Gem’ and ‘Entertainment Moment of the Year’, allowing the wider industry to vote for the standout title which captured the audience’s imaginations, and the pivotal moment in popular culture throughout the year. Votes are still being accepted so you can vote for Hidden Gem here and Entertainment Moment of the Year here.

Liz Bales, Chief Executive, BASE said: “I genuinely believe that the BASE Awards are a unique celebration each year. We come together as a community and celebrate our successes and hard work, together. The volume of submissions this year was fantastic, building on the amazing growth we saw last year and the new categories we introduced, which ensure the awards are the broadest and most representative celebration possible. Congratulations to all those who have been shortlisted, and to everyone who entered. It is always an incredibly difficult job to pick the winners in an industry that surpasses itself year on year, and as always my huge thanks and appreciation to the judges for all their time and consideration. I can’t wait to celebrate with you all on the 25th of September!”

Tickets are available at £450+VAT for members, and £550+VAT for non-members, with £10 from each ticket sale going to BASE’s charity partner, Action for Children. A range of sponsorship opportunities are available. You can find out more here, or contact Vicki directly.
