FRIDAY 3 OCT 2014 9:19 AM


The medium of video is uniquely placed to affect and influence the public psyche. This makes it the natural choice of communication for campaigns that want to align their audience with a specific cause or message. The Clarion Awards is EVCOM’s recognition of socially conscious video communications campaigns, and is now in its 11th year.

The 2014 EVCOM Clarion Awards, promoting CSR, diversity, sustainability, community development, education and health issues, were held at the British Medical Association in London last Friday. Winners on the night included ‘Grand prix’ winner Belong, who won for the ‘Midlands together’ case study. The campaign also won in the ‘Video’ and the ‘Advertising and promotional’ categories.

EVCOM CEO Marco Forgione says, "Congratulations to all the winners of the EVCOM Clarions, this was a record-breaking year for participation and it was exciting to see the breadth and scale of the work and projects which have been delivered over the past year. EVCOM members are helping brands and organisations communicate their CSR messages on film, video, broadcast, radio and events."

Other winners on the night included Big Button, who won ‘Social media’ for ‘Mike’s last ride’; a hard-hitting road safety film for Lancashire County Council. The film received over 50,000 hits in its first two weeks on YouTube. EdComs also took home three awards for two campaigns: ‘The mystery of dragon castle’ and ‘Smart kids’. EVCOM China recognised ‘Water cellar for mothers’, a sustainable development campaign by China Women’s Development Foundation (CWDF). The project helped to ensure clean water for families living in Western regions of China. ​

Winning videos can be viewed on the EVCOM YouTube channel.
