Celebrating the best of the best in the corporate film and live events industries with a CSR focus, the EVCOM Clarion Awards is a scheme that we hold close to our hearts here at EVCOM. It recognises work that combines creative and technical excellence, with cause-driven work, projects that have been designed to make a difference, to educate people, to change people’s minds. Across the categories of environment, health and wellbeing, education and training, social welfare, brand communication, innovation, diversity and inclusion and celebratory, the EVCOM Clarion Awards reward live events and experiences and corporate films that are issue based.
And now more than ever, it is so important to honour work that highlights these issues. With the EVCOM Clarion Awards closing for entry in just over a week, we spoke to some of last year’s lovely winners about their experience of the EVCOM Clarion Awards, and the impact walking away with a trophy had on their business and their team:
“Winning an EVCOM Clarion gold award was a great achievement for the Forces Live Events (CSE) team. We deliver over 80 live events and activations a year for the armed forces community. We are very proud to support them and help to deliver engaging live events, partnering with the MOD to deliver key messaging in a fun and memorable way,” says Angie Avlianos, Events Manager, Forces Live Events, CSE. who won Gold in the category Live: Diversity and Inclusion.
Tim Langford, who won Silver in Film: Health and Wellbeing, for his film series ‘Jessica’s Parkrun Heroes’, adds, “I considered myself and my entries as a David amongst Goliaths when I got nominated and won awards in 2019. So it’s gratifying to have got placed.”
Naomi Hall, the support and development officer for Alopecia UK says, “Shedding’ has been used across our website and social media channels, helping to get word out about the charity whilst increasing awareness of alopecia within the wider public too. Being a small charity, opportunities to create such a thought provoking and educational awareness campaign do not come up very often. It’s fantastic to see the film getting recognition in awards like the EVCOM Clarion Awards and is a true testament to all the hard work the DRPG team put into creating such a wonderful resource for us.”
Dominic Allen, director and scriptwriter at DRPG adds, “It’s a great honour to have been highly commended at the EVCOM Clarion Awards, especially for our work with such a fantastic charity. This is a project that was close to my heart and a strong example of DRPG’s commitment to CSR, so we’re all proud to have been part of the push to help those living with the condition. To get industry recognition for the work is fantastic as it helps to provide further inspiration and some clarity to a widely misunderstood and rarely publicised medical condition.” The film was awarded Highly Commended in the category Film: Health and Wellbeing.
