The inaugural Charity Film Awards, which recognise the best films and videos created for, or on behalf of, registered charities within the UK, has opened for entries.
The Charity Film Awards is split into six categories. Five are for films under five minutes in length and are based on the charity’s turnover for the latest financial year, and a final category for videos over five minutes, including documentaries.
The Awards are free to enter and charities, agencies and charity supporters have until 21st October to place their nominations. 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 at BAFTA in March 2017.

“In the digital age, charities’ abilities to create video content and share it to communicate their stories and messages is powerful and essential. Video in all its forms is a crucial part of the modern charities marketing toolkit. We want to celebrate the very best examples of the art.”
