Over 300 attendees virtually attended CDN’s 21st College Awards, which took place on Thursday 3 December. This year, due to the pandemic, we had to do things very differently.

One year ago, just after holding the College Awards at the Radisson in Glasgow, we would never have imagined that we would even be talking about the possibility of holding the 2020 College Awards ceremony online. But we did it! Thank you to everyone who made the event so special and joined us to celebrate the talent and skills of college staff and students.

We have received remarkable post-event feedback, which has made us all smile, so thank you! We were also thrilled to see lots of #CollegeAwards conversations happening on social media. To sum up the event, we thought we would look back on some of our favourite moments of the night…
