Create Wins Creative Vision Award from Kingston Smith

It is with great excitement that I can announce Create as winners of Kingston Smith’s annual Creative Vision Award!

The Creative Vision Award is dedicated to offering cutting edge promotional animations to charities, recognising the powerful impact that a film can make on a wide audience. Alongside Refuge – a charity providing specialist support to women and children experiencing domestic violence – we have been awarded a bespoke animated film to tell our story and communicate our key messages.

We have been given this opportunity at no cost – a production process usually worth £150,000 – and this will give us a creative, fun, powerful way to increase our reach and spread awareness of what Create does.

Chosen through a rigorous application process, our short film will be created by some of the UK film industry’s most exceptional rising talent. The film will incorporate cutting edge VFX and animation techniques in order to deliver Create’s key message that the creative arts can transform lives. Produced in partnership with Bournemouth University’s BFX Festival, our original animation will be unveiled in the early autumn, with everyone here extremely excited to see how the young artists choose to express our values visually.

As a creative arts charity, we promote the social, communicative and educational benefits of creativity and the arts to society, making this a particularly fitting opportunity to convey our ethos through a creative medium.
