2020 Winner: The Cory Band 2020 Online Championships
An event that combined fun, invention, determination and a much needed boost of collective well being for the whole of the banding movement across the globe.
It was a mammoth undertaking by the band and its members and the result was a fantastic success.
Congratulations to everyone associated with the Cory production which gained four first preference choices from the panel plus four other podium nominations.
It was close run battle for the runner-up spot, with the newly launched Wobplay.com platform and Foden's own on-line productions each gaining two first preference nominations, but with wobplay just gaining an extra point in our countback process for podium nominations to give them the edge.
There were also first preference choices for Tabby Kerwin, B.A.N.D. and Ryan Bradley.
