Nominations for the inaugural Charity Film Awards, recognising the best films and videos that have been created for, or on behalf of, UK registered charities are open for nominations until 21 October 2016.
The Charity Film Awards are to celebrate the social sector’s use of video, whether for raising awareness, changing attitudes and behaviours, or fundraising. Charity Bank is supporting the awards and it is part of the judging panel.
The awards are split into six categories. Five are for films under five minutes in length. These are based on the charity's turnover for the latest financial year, so everyone has a chance to win an award regardless of the size of the organisation and the budgets available. There will be one category for all films over five minutes in length and an overall winner award for the very best charity film of the year.
The Awards are free to enter and charities and supporters will have the opportunity to nominate their videos for the Charity Film Awards.
After the nomination process, there will be a public vote of all the films entered, which will determine the final shortlist. The winners will then be announced at a gala event in Central London in March 2017.
