Category Description Select category
ANIMATION

Creative and effective design and use of animation. Digital distribution provides new channels for delivering animation to multiple devices, a range of screen sizes and audiences in differing locations. Judges will look for content that uses new and traditional methods to reach audiences, and which demonstrates clear creative thinking to achieve the client’s goals.

CHARITY AND NOT FOR PROFIT

Screen content that is produced for the third sector; charities and not-for-profit organisations. This category has amazing stories to tell and entries should aim to show how their project delivered exceptional results with creativity and innovation. Judges may take into account the budget restrictions that voluntary organisations typically work under.

CINEMATOGRAPHY

Outstanding cinematography. The visual impact of a film can make the difference between success and failure. Continuous technical innovation offers better quality images and more flexibility than ever, so judges will look for films that fully integrate exceptional cinematography into the production, perhaps in ways that have never been done before.

CONTENT FOR SOCIAL MEDIA

A film or series of films that connect strongly with a social media campaign or are the central content of the campaign. Judges will look for work that has reached an audience over a series of social media platforms and has been innovative in integrating with other content. Don't forget to share feedback, engagement scores and any evidence you have that your film really hit the mark.

DIRECTION

Outstanding direction. Directors see the whole project in their head and work at every stage of the production process to deliver that vision to the screen. Entries should aim to show how direction has made a project a success with a clear reference to the client’s communication objectives and to what extent they were achieved.

DOCUMENTARY

For unrivalled documentary programme making. Successful factual films can have a profound impact on an organisation’s culture because they have an authenticity that the audience engages with. Judges will look for examples that use the documentary form to best effect, and reasons why it was the best form for the project.

DRAMA

Outstanding drama-based film making.  Corporate film offers exceptional opportunities to use drama to engage audiences, especially when they are overwhelmed with content from digital and social media. Great drama brings stories to life and stays in the memory long after being watched. Entries should aim to show how they developed the client’s messages into a drama that exceeded the project’s objectives.

EDITING

For the most original, creative and effective editing. All production elements have to come together in the edit and editors need a deep understanding of all aspects of film-making to complete an outstanding film. Judges will look for the contribution the editor(s) made and how it was a key part of a successful project.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

Projects with the aim of informing, educating and improving health and safety. This category offers a wide range of creative options for producers, and better outcomes can also be measured successfully. Judges may look for screen content that brings to life areas which are highly regulated but essential parts of commerce and industry.

LAURUS AWARD

The most outstanding film achieved with a budget of under £15,000. Digital and social media have made production and distribution more accessible than ever. Judges will be looking for projects that have seized these opportunities to reach new heights of creativity and impact with modest budgets.

LIVE VIDEO

Live streaming commissioned by a corporate brand. This includes broadcast, webcast, live 360 video, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Skype and other platforms used for live video. Judges will be looking for creativity, technical expertise and evaluation that show streaming delivering results for a brand.

MARKETING AND PR

Screen content commissioned to build and support an organisation’s external reputation. Entries should demonstrate their success in interpreting the client’s core messages and communicating them successfully to defined target audiences. The judges will be looking for evidence of success.

MUSIC

Original music that has been specifically written or recomposed which significantly enhances the experience and impact of the film. The judges will look for examples of how music has both reflected the creative themes of the film and added further value to them.

ONE TO WATCH

The film or digital startup business that is making waves in corporate communication. Entrants must have started operating after 1st January 2015 and will be judged on their entrepreneurial spirit, ability to break new ground creatively and technically, and their business performance. Moving image content must be a key element of the company’s offering but does not need to be the only product. EVCOM will assemble a judging panel of brand communication managers to judge this category and shortlisted entrants will be invited to present in person before the judges.

PROMOTION AND SALES

Projects produced with the aim of selling, promoting and informing either B2B or B2C. Successful video content works as a central component of a campaign and engages target audiences in a world where content is everywhere. The judges will look for clear sales results as well as creativity and originality.

RECRUITMENT AND INDUCTION

Moving image content produced to aid internal branding, talent acquisition, recruitment and induction. This category represents screen content that makes a real impact on recruits, either to attract them to the client business or to brief them when they join. The judges will be looking for a compelling presentation of the client’s brand values and a measurable impact on the client’s business.

RISING STAR

The most talented newcomer to the corporate  film and visual communication industry. Candidates must have a maximum of two years’ experience in the industry, and may be an employee, freelancer or contractor. If self-employed, candidates should present two references that can be contacted by a judges’ representative. The judges will look for evidence of outstanding work that shows an ability to learn quickly, solve problems and produce innovative solutions – in other words, star potential.

SCREEN INNOVATION

Screen content is changing along with the technology that is used to show it. The judges are looking for best use of innovative technologies such as 360 virtual reality, very large screens at live events, augmented reality, video brochures, live streaming etc. It is essential that you supply data on the effect achieved and on return on the client's investment.

SCRIPT

For the most original, creative and effective script. Excellent writing is the foundation on which successful screen projects are built. Entries should demonstrate how they understood and developed the client’s brief into the final script.

TRAINING

Screen content produced to support training, development and education. Submissions should demonstrate their effectiveness either as a standalone project or as part of a broader training programme.

VFX AND MOTION GRAPHICS

For creative and effective design and use of VFX and motion graphics. Animation is now a separate category so the judges are looking for effects and motion graphics that support the client’s objectives with originality, creativity and brilliant execution.
