Clarion Awards

Clarion Film Awards EvcomThe EVCOM Clarion Awards celebrate true excellence across cause-driven corporate film, live events and experiences

Our range of categories recognise work that promotes diversity and inclusion, social welfare and educational initiatives. We call for the most creative and innovative content in this arena, demanding evidence of best practice and professional excellence.  

In recent years we have seen the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement, we have felt the continued force of the climate crisis, we have watched our NHS rise to the challenges of Covid-19, and seen communities struggle under the impact of Brexit and the cost of living crisis. Never before has it been so important to recognise creative work that puts these issues centre stage. 

This year we’ve introduced some new categories which are focused on sustainability. We want to celebrate agencies and suppliers who have been factoring sustainability into events, film productions and business models.

Entry costs are as follows:

Member: £150 (+VAT)

Non-Member: £250 (+VAT)

Freelancer: £100 (+VAT)

The EVCOM Clarion Awards 2023 takes place in the first half of the year. Shortlisted agencies and individuals are invited to attend an awards ceremony with a focus on sustainability, where thought leadership is shared, winners announced and clips from the winning projects played. 

Projects and events published/ delivered after the 1st March 2022 up until 14th March 2023 are eligible for entry.
