Call for Entries

The Radharc Trust is delighted to announce the call for entries of documentary films of outstanding quality in the spirit of Radharc, to be honoured at the 2021 Awards Event.


The Radharc Awards were established in 2002 to honour the legacy of the Radharc Films production unit and its achievements in religious affairs programming for Irish television. Between 1962 and 1997, the Radharc series earned a national and international reputation for its thoughtful and at times provocative religious documentary films. The Radharc team strove to present challenging subject matter to a sometimes conservative Irish audience through well-researched and technically skilful productions, made popular by their common-sense lyricism and occasional humour.

The Radharc Awards are intended to encourage and promote similar high standards of craft, content and commitment in documentary production, and are presented to the makers of Irish documentary films of outstanding quality that address national or global topics of social justice, human rights, spirituality, religious faith and heritage.

There are two categories for entry.

Category One:

An award for Irish produced television documentaries broadcast for the first time on any free to air channel on the island of Ireland between the 22nd of September 2018 and 1st September 2021.

Category Two:
