Clarion Awards

Clarion Film Awards EvcomThe EVCOM Clarion Awards celebrate true excellence across cause-driven corporate and brand film, content and campaigns, live events and experiences, offering recognition to brilliant work that makes an impact.

Our range of categories recognise projects and agencies that promote diversity and inclusion, social welfare, sustainability and educational initiatives. We call for the most creative and innovative content in this arena, demanding evidence of best practice and professional excellence. We welcome submissions from international brands and inspiring charities alike, and are proud to celebrate commercial work alongside grassroots work.

This 2024 we continue to feel the force of the climate crisis and we see our communities struggle under the impact of Brexit and the cost of living crisis. At the same time we have watched conflict erupt across the world, and seen an increase in hate crimes directed towards marginalised groups. Never before has it been so important to recognise creative work that puts these issues centre stage.

Last year we introduced some new categories which were focused on sustainability. We wanted to celebrate agencies and suppliers who have been factoring sustainability into events, film productions and business models. These are running again this year, alongside our usual roster of categories. Projects and events published/ delivered after the 1st March 2023 up until this year‘s deadline, 14th March 2024, are eligible for entry.

Enter here to help us celebrate change-making creativity!

Entry costs are as follows:

Member: £150 (+VAT)

Non-Member: £250 (+VAT)

Freelancer: £100 (+VAT)
