The Grierson Trust commemorates the pioneering Scottish documentary maker John Grierson: the man widely regarded as the father of the documentary. Each year, The Trust celebrates the best documentary filmmaking from Britain and around the world with the British Documentary Awards - more fondly known as The Griersons - as well as encouraging young filmmakers though its outreach and education schemes.

Entries for the 2016 Grierson Awards will be accepted from 1 April to 31 May. Documentaries shown in the UK between 1 May 2015 and 30 April 2016 will be eligible.
