We all know it’s not the winning that counts, it’s the taking part.
And we all know it definitely IS the winning that counts.
As the Oscars, Golden Globes and BAFTAs fade away for another year, we enter our own wee awards season. This week it was the Institute of Internal Communication Awards, where we were shortlisted in the category for Best Use of Audio/Visual Communication.
Unfortunately the awards only has one category for visual communication. In a fit of enthusiasm, we entered work for Bank of Scotland, Ladbrokes and BAE Systems and low and behold the entries became 3 out of 5 shortlisted by IoIC. Happily we won [for BAE Systems "BAEutiful Mind"] but sadly for our other entries, we also only took part. Happily BAE Systems were with us on the night and some very dodgy dancing ensued – well the dodgy was by Speakeasy of course.
We will just have time to get the tuxedos dry cleaned before the International Visual Communication Association awards in London. We are shortlisted in IVCA’s Best Regular Communications category for ‘Keeping the Branch Running’, which we produced for Lloyds Banking Group.
This is followed in April by the New York Festivals TV and Film Awards where we have three films shortlisted as finalists: “Keeping the Branch Running” for Lloyds Banking Group, “This is the Man” for BAT and a suite of Innovation and Product Films for BAE Systems.
So, wish us luck.
