The EVCOM Industry Awards will officially open for entry on 27th May 2020 with new categories added “to reflect the current global situation.”

Entrants will be able to submit their work from across the spectrums of live and film, and expert judges will review work based on standards of best practise and professional excellence.

The EVCOM London Film Awards  will have a new category specifically for film makers working on a smaller budget to create more opportunity for the many freelance filmmakers who are creating film on minimal budgets.

Virtual and hybrid events are also being promoted so there is also a new category entitled ‘Best Video Content for a Virtual or Hybrid Event’, which will create a space for film, animation and video content created in the context of this new kind of event.

Evcom is also introducing the new category of ‘Innovation’. This category aims to recognise the ‘evolving normal’ of filmmaking, and encourages submissions that have been made in response to Covid-19, or films that have dealt with demonstrable practical restrictions that have impacted the way the film was made, caused by Covid-19.

And in honour of EVCOM’s history, as an organisation that was formed by the work of documentary makers, we are delighted announce the new ‘Best Documentary’ category, to recognise new work and Evcom’s heritage.

The EVCOM London Live Awards are also adding a ‘Best Hybrid Event’ category, and a  ‘Venue of the Year’ category.

The Awards open for entry on Wednesday 27th May.
