Phil Sayer wins inaugural VOX Veteran award

The late Phil Sayer was the first recipient of the new VOX Veteran Award, whilst the awards themselves introduced a new Sayer Producer of the Year category in his memory.

Phil’s wife Elinor Hamilton collected the VOX Veteran award in his honour at the event in Manchester on Saturday night, after over a minute long standing ovation by the 100+ audience of voiceovers and audio professionals. A special tribute video was played showing his work from over the years, including when he was a newsreader with BBC TV and voicing the train and tube announcements.

Phil was a regular attendee and sponsor at VOX since its inception 19 years ago and died in April aged 62.

VOX organisers also paid tribute to the former Piccadilly, Red Rose, GMR and Smooth presenter with a page in the event brochure.

The weekend, which included a conference and networking, also gave out the VOX Awards hosted by Marc Silk. The winners are below:
