With the EVCOM London Live and Film Awards opening for entry on the 10th June, we wanted to share with you this year’s categories, including old favourites and new categories. The new categories have been created in consultation with our 2020 judges and the EVCOM Board, to reflect the impact the last year has had on the work that we are able to make. We will be highlighting films created specifically for social media campaigns, for example, and we will be celebrating broadcast events and webinar series. Across all categories, work that demonstrates diversity and inclusion, and sustainable practises will be rewarded.
On both sides of the awards we are introducing a new ‘Best in Show’ category. Everyone who enters the awards will automatically be entered into this category. We will be recognising the strongest work from each sector and rewarding it accordingly, spotlighting the best of the best as is the tradition of these awards.
