Man Like Mobeen up for arts award

...as is Cariad Lloyd

Man Like Mobeen and comedian Cariad Lloyd have been nominated for awards to honour those who make a social impact in the arts.

The Visionary Awards aim to recognise those from ‘BAME, LGBTQ+, disabled and low-income groups as well as anyone who feels their story is not being told in the mainstream’.

Guz Khan’s comedy has been shortlisted for TV show of the year, while Griefcast host Lloyd is up for influencer or journalist of the year.

Khan and his Man Like Mobeen co-creator Andy Milligan said in a statement: ‘Man Like Mobeen making this shortlist is an enormous compliment. 

‘Everyone who works on the show is passionate about creating something that reflects a community that's too often misrepresented on TV and the media in general. This is another step towards us changing that. (And we hope it’s funny too).’

Also in the running are Ross Kemp Living With…; RuPaul’s Drag Race; Seven Worlds, One Planet; When They See Us; and Years And Years.

Winners are decided by public vote. Website visitors must vote on every category, whether they know the nominees or not.

Sally Phillips will host the awards on Wednesday March 18 at the Ham Yard Hotel in Soho, Central London.
