SUBMISSION DEADLINE IN:
We understand this is an extremely challenging, unprecedented time for our industry, and the world.
As a result of the pandemic, we have decided to postpone the awards night until the 30th November, and extend submission deadlines by two months.
Our thoughts are with those affected by the virus, particularly those who are sick. We wish them a speedy recovery, and we remain inspired by the healthcare workers and others who are caring for people around the world.
As the awards have grown, we’ve noticed a group of filmmakers missing out. Many of these films are made by solo film makers, shooting and editing themselves, or small productions with very little budget- still making incredible work but having a tough time up against studio pictures and manufacturer commercials. Indie filmmakers rejoice, this category is for you.
The trophies are bespoke and intricately handcrafted items. Polished aluminium, heated stainless steel, laser cut perspex, carved wood and galvanised steel come together to form trophies that stand over 30cm tall.
The Grand Prix trophy features a gold conrod, wheel and galvanised laurel, as well as a brushed gold scroll and plaque to stand out from the rest.

THE GRAND, LONDON
21-25 Saint John's Hill, London, SW11 1TT
The Grand is a Grade II listed Victorian building originally built as a 3,000 audience capacity music hall in 1900. In 1901 they began screening films and in 1927 converted to a full time cinema- continuing on through two World Wars! There is no doubt that this venue will have screened some of the original films that established the film industry of today. Now in 2020, it's used for live music, club nights and movie screenings; featuring the UK's largest sports screen. That balance between Victorian architecture and updated technology make it our choice of venue for the screening, awards and afterparty.
