CHARITY FILM AWARDS ENTRY DEADLINE EXTENDED
Charities, fans and agencies now have until 17 October to enter
The Charity Film Awards have extended their entry deadline until 5pm on Tuesday 17 October, giving charities, fans and agencies an additional two weeks to enter their charity films.
The Charity Film Awards celebrate the third sectors use of film, whether to raise awareness for the charity, fundraise or change mindsets and behaviours. Free to enter, the Awards categories are based on the charities turnover and the length of video.
All the films entered will go into a Public Voting stage, where fans are encouraged to vote on their favourite charity video to go through to the Shortlist. The Shortlist are then reviewed by the judges, whittling them down to the Finalist videos, who go through to the Awards Ceremony.
Jo Tyler, Co-founder of the Charity Film Awards, commented; “The third sector are beginning to embrace the use of film, whether to tell their story or motivate a behavioural change in others. The Charity Film Awards celebrate the effectiveness and creativeness of these films. We’ve had hundreds of fantastic videos entered already and hopefully the extra two weeks will give charities, fans and agencies the opportunity to nominate more great videos.”
The inaugural Charity Film Awards saw over 200 guests attend a black-tie ceremony at the iconic BAFTA 195. St John Ambulance received the Charity Film of the Year award, with Alzheimer’s Society, Royal Trinity Hospice, The National Holocaust Centre and Museum, Support and Love via Education International, The Loss Foundation and Communities for Development winning their category gongs. Soi Dog Foundation were presented the People’s Choice Award after receiving the most votes during the Public Voting stages.
