Charities: win a professional animated film worth £150,000


Charities are being given the chance to win a free animated film created by professional animators worth £150,000 to be produced in summer 2015.

Chartered accountancy firm, Kingston Smith, is calling for applications to its first Creative Vision Award. To apply, charities need to explain how a film would help them to promote their cause and suggest some content ideas, such as key messages and a possible scenario. A panel of media and charity experts will be judging the applications.

Nick Brooks, head of not-for-profit at Kingston Smith, said: “Having recently supported Aardman’s short film commemorating World War One, ‘The Flight of the Stories’, we realised there was an opportunity to do something exciting and unique in the sector by bringing charity and film together; two sectors that Kingston Smith is well established in. By offering charities the opportunity to work with film producers completely free of charge, we are delighted to support the production of something creative, tangible and positive to raise awareness of a worthwhile cause.”

Applications can be made through the website before 2nd February.
