The live production and broadcast of the 2015 Henley Regatta has been shortlisted for the prestigious BT Sport Industry Awards.
The official shortlist for the BT Sports Industry Awards are selected by 70 key industry figures. The shortlist will now go forward for consideration by the main judging panel to decide the winners in each category.
The five day Henley Regatta was streamed on YouTube and included ground-breaking coverage and images from a drone camera, which has made the final list in the Cutting Edge Sport Award. It is a fantastic achievement for the Regatta to be nominated for such as prestigious award and it proves that it is not just the quality of racing but also the quality of coverage that makes this such as special event.
