Video content is now considered a key component in many charities’ marketing tool kit. These awards are clear in their objectives: to demonstrate that in the modern world film-making is the most powerful piece of equipment in the charity communication tool box. To demonstrate that the common perception of charities’ video content is incorrect. To demonstrate that a charitable video can inspire, incite to action, excite and change behaviour. Can make us laugh, as well as make us cry.
The charities that have entered the Charity Film Awards have created videos that have the power to move, to warm hearts, to inspire, to engage…. to change the world. To do good. The Charity Film Awards are designed to celebrate those qualities and help charities connect with a wider audience.
The public vote shortlist will be announced in January 2019 and finalists for each category in March 2019. The winners will be decided by a panel of expert judges from organisations such as The Times, The Guardian, BBC News as well as charities Cancer Research UK and the RSPCA.
The judges will select 5 finalists in each category from the public shortlist. The winners will be announced at the red carpet ceremony at a prestigious venue in London. Winning entries will be those which, in the opinion and sole discretion of the panel of judges, best meet the judging criteria.
