As with many other award ceremonies of late, the 2021 Chemical Industry Awards will be held virtually on 17 June. These premier awards for the chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing sector attracted a record number of entries despite the challenging conditions facing the industry. The virtual ceremony is free to attend with prior booking. TV presenter and former BBC Strictly Come Dancing winner Chris Hollins will host the awards.

After a judging process involving over 30 sponsors and specialists Steve Elliott, Chief Executive of the CIA was pleased to announce the shortlist. "It is fantastic to see so many excellent entries this year when the industry worked exceptionally hard to keep going throughout the pandemic to ensure the products we all need to remain safe, healthy and able to go about our daily lives as normal as possible were available. Congratulations to all on the shortlist – you are all winners."

This award is in memory of CIA’s Nick Sturgeon, who sadly passed away in 2019. The award will be given to an individual who has made a significant contribution to the industry over a number years. As nominees in this category are unaware they have been nominated, no shortlist has been published. 





Introducing our special guest host - Chris Hollins




Originally best known as BBC Breakfast’s sports correspondent, Chris Hollins became a firm viewers’ favourite on Strictly Come Dancing, winning the dance contest. Whilst still retaining a sports brief, he has also fronted a host of factual programmes and coverage of live events. Chris presents a range of sports coverage for BT Sport including Premiership Rugby 7s, the FIH Hockey Champions Trophy, and rugby, Moto GP and boxing.  

Away from the sports desk, Chris has anchored BBC Breakfast and joined the team of guest presenters on Cash in The Attic. He served as a co-host of BBC One’s long running consumer programme Watchdog, and explored the countryside with Secret Britain. Other credits include The One Show, and The Great British Weather with Alexander Armstrong. He was also part of BBC coverage of the Diamond Jubilee events and Children in Need. 

During his role covering sport for Breakfast, Chris became known for his diving head-first into a variety of physically gruelling challenges. He also co-hosted Olympic Breakfast during the 2012 London Games. Having started his career at Sky Sports, he has also reported for the BBC’s Grandstand and Football Focus programmes. 

Chris is an ambassador for the Gold Challenge, part of the legacy programme for London 2012. Participants take on five or more Olympic or Paralympic sports to raise money for their own charities. He has played cricket for Oxford and football for Aldershot and QPR, but he couldn’t match the success of his father and uncle: both played for England.
