This year's shortlist, as always, contains some of the best religious radio and tv programmes that you'll find anywhere in the world. So it's a tough job for the judges who are currently working on just which programmes they should choose as the 2013 winners.
There are 2 teams of judges - one for Radio (and any other audio entries) led by former singer and broadcaster the Rev Cindy Kent, and a separate team for the TV/video entries led by the outspoken art critic, writer and broadcaster, Brian Sewell.
Please don't forget that you too can be a judge - and help choose one of the winners - by taking part in the Radio Times reader's vote. Fuller details on that are below.
