Åke Blomström was the Head of the Features Department at Swedish Radio for many years.
In this capacity, he was a great mentor and supporter of young programme makers.
After his untimely death, it therefore seemed obvious to his friends and colleagues within the international features community that the way to honour his memory was through the establishment of an award in the form of a travel stipend to unable talented young documentary makers to attend the International Featutes Conference.
