Shortlisted Finalist Announcement

The shortlist of finalists will be announced by Friday 5th February 2021. They will then be invited to the Awards Ceremony and Dinner. We require all shortlisted finalists to create a short two minute video about their award nomination. Even though we stipulate that the video should be created at little to no extra cost by using existing equipment and your creativity, we recognise that it’s a big ask. For this reason, the most creative video award recognises the originality and ingenuity to create inspired, fun and/or impactful video content.
