The Clarion Awards celebrates corporate social responsibility and sustainability in film and has recognised creative and innovative films for over a decade. Last year, however, with Evcom’s decision to unite its awards programmes under one banner, the Evcom Industry Awards, it did not host the Clarions.

But, the awards have been reinstated for 2019. “This is a unique award scheme, which highlights the impact we have as a creative sector on the whole CSR agenda, to win an Clarion says a lot about your organisation and your commitment to your employees and the community,” says Eco Events’ Sam Wilson who is a part of the organising team.

The stated objective of the Clarions is to ‘seek out excellence in film in the support of game-changing CSR and educational initiatives and this year, the emphasis will be on far-reaching and specifically global impact.’ The Clarions are open for entry in 20 categories, celebrating diversity and inclusion, employee wellbeing and ESG issues, until 10 June. The winners will be revealed at this summer’s Evcomference.

The conference, one of the premier events on Evcom’s calendar, takes place on 5 September at the Design Museum in London. “Evcom is committed to making its members more successful, it is the only trade association that brings together corporate members, agencies, production companies, suppliers, destinations and freelance across a multichannel community,” says Evcom CEO, Jenny Jenkins about the conference.

Further change within the trade association comes with announcement of chair Rachel Pendered’s resignation. The managing director of Media Zoo was a representative from the media and communications contingent of Evcom’s membership. In response, Jenkins will remain in her post of CEO past the end of her contract in March, until Evcom’s AGM in July. At that meeting, nominations for the board will be voted upon.

The annual Evcom Industry Awards is open for entry until 10 June as well.
