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 2020 we saw the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement, we felt the continued force of the climate crisis, we watched our NHS rise to the challenges of Covid-19 and communities struggle under its impact. Never before has it been so important to recognise creative work that puts these issues centre stage. 

Shortlisted agencies and individuals were invited to attend an entirely sustainable virtual awards ceremony on the 8th June, hosted in collaboration with DRPG. The afternoon featured screenings of the winning films as they are announced, as well as invaluable thought leadership content from industry experts! You can view the shortlist here. You can find a write up of the ceremony, as well as the full list of winners here.

Projects and events published/ delivered after the 1st March 2020 up until the deadline, 12th March 2021, were eligible for entry. 

Read our Guide to Entering here, complete with FAQs and advice.

As a result of the continuing impact of Covid-19 on our sector, we decided to retain 2020’s lowered entry costs for 2021, including a dedicated rate for freelancers.

2021 Categories

In 2020, we saw the two sectors that EVCOM represents (live and film), come together through the growth of virtual and hybrid in response to Covid-19. In reflection of this, and due to the nature of the work produced in 2020, we have decided to make some exciting changes to the format of the EVCOM Clarion Awards. Instead of work being judged by one of two distribution channels (Live and Film) we will be looking at ALL work that answers to the over-arching theme of the category. We are therefore calling for work encompassing film (live action and/or animation), documentary, branded content, live events, virtual events, hybrid events, experiences, campaigns and collaborations, including projects that have pivoted in any way.

Juries will be made up of members from Event Agencies, Film Agencies, Clients, Suppliers including technology platforms, to ensure the full spectrum of expertise is brought to the process. We whole heartedly encourage you to embrace these changes and demonstrate the great work that has been made over the last 12 months to promote these worthy categories.
