The Creative Circle 2023 Awards is now open for entries, ready to celebrate the best of British creative work and talent. For one more week, Early Birds can receive 10% off.
As ever, entry into the Creative Circle awards will mean supporting wider representation in the creative industries. 10% of all award entry fees and 100% of membership fees continue to be pledged to the Creative Foundation charity - which has raised over £150,000 since its launch in 2017. With no employees or overheads to support, 100% of this has gone directly towards supporting young creatives.
The 2023 awards will feature revised categories to better celebrate the best British creative work from across the year. It will also debut a Gold jury for Photography, Illustration, Image Manipulation, and CGI. In addition, Film Craft categories will be broken down into the following, with each jury composed of both creatives and specialists to prevent purely technical judging:
- Film Craft - Direction, Cinematography and Music
- Film Craft - Direction, Cinematography and Styling, Casting, Costume & Performance
- Film Craft - Direction, Cinematography and Editing
- Film Craft - Colour Grading & VFX
- Film Craft - Animation
Following the expansion of New Talent categories last year, Creative Circle will continue to support the next generation of creatives with Talent categories remaining free to enter once again.
Determined to deliver even throughout the pandemic, the Creative Circle was the first to deliver a virtual awards ceremony in 2020, and in 2021 held the first outdoor creative award ceremony at the UK Creative Festival in Dreamland, Margate, which returned for 2022.
The Creative Circle Awards ceremony will again take place at this year’s UK Creative Festival at Dreamland, Margate, closing the event on 13th July 2023. The festival is due to be bigger and better than ever before, featuring speakers, workshops, and panels to inspire the British creative community of today and tomorrow with representation from all areas of British creativity.
The fairest show in the UK, the Creative Circle is the only award show which invites the entire UK Creative community to judge the submitted work, with registration open to any creative currently working in the creative industries in the UK.
