Yesterday we celebrated the best of cause-driven creativity at the EVCOM Clarion Awards. Filmmakers and event organiser joined virtually for a live broadcast from DRPG’s studios. In the glorious sunshine, the ceremony took place on the roof with views out across the countryside. Kate Sturgess, our wonderful host opened the ceremony. We heard opening remarks from both Claire Fennelow, EVCOM’s Executive Director, and from Charlotte Gentry, EVCOM’s Board Chair, welcoming our audience and highlighting the importance of recognising work that seeks to create an impact.
Kate then went on to announce our winners across a range of categories from Environment to Diversity and Inclusion, Social Welfare to Celebratory. We saw live action and animation being rewarded, films short and long being recognised, virtual events and pivoted broadcasts in the spotlight! The gold films were screened live for everyone to appreciate.
Through out the ceremony we also heard from industry experts who shared their perspectives with Claire. Steve Garvey (Moving Image) discussed the trends demonstrated by the Clarion entries, and what they can show us about the corporate film sector more widely. Sam Wilson (Syntiro Associates) and Dale Parmenter (DRPG) spoke about sustainability, certification and DRPG’s own policies. Later we heard from Ashanti Bentil-Dhue about how our industries can address the lack of diversity, the impact of Covid-19 on D&I programmes and what the spectrum of diversity really means. Finally Charlotte Gentry once again joined Claire to talk about the future of events as the industry recovers.
It was afternoon of fascinating discussion and award-winning work – congratulations to all of our winners! We will be making a recording of the broadcast available on our website next week. In the meantime, view our full list of winners below:
