The Observer/Anthony Burgess awards 2015: Ed Cripps wins second prize

Ed Cripps’s article on a South Bank Show about Paul Greengrass scooped second place at the annual arts journalism awards

BFI honours outgoing chairman Greg Dyke with Fellowship

Dyke receives the BFI Fellowship for his “outstanding contribution to film”.

Greg Dyke, the outgoing chairman of the British Film Institute, has been awarded a BFI Fellowship for his “outstanding contribution to film”.

The award was presented by broadcaster and writer Melvyn Bragg during an event at BFI Southbank on Thursday (Feb 11).

Dyke, who began his career in journalism, has held roles across film and television throughout a career spanning five decades.

He became director general of the BBC in 2000, before taking over as BFI chairman in 2008. He is also currently chairman of the English Football Association.

Dyke said of receiving the award: “Thank you to my friends at the BFI, we’ve had a great eight years together. We’ve faced lots of challenges but we’re better now than ever and doing more than ever. It’s a brilliant organisation and I’m overwhelmed by this BFI Fellowship award.”
