Big Wins for APA Members at the Creative Circle Awards 2016

The winners of the 2016 Creative Circle Awards were announced last night at the legendary Roundhouse in Camden. Presented by Edith Bowman the ceremony awarded over 200 accolades (not all presented on the night!) and covered a range of categories within film craft, writing, innovation and design to name a few.

Plenty of APA members saw their names up on the big screen on the night, with successes across all categories. The standout of the night was certainly The Mill, who walked away with ten awards, as well as picking up Creative Production Company of the Year.  Another team who went home with a smile on their face are Rogue –Director Tom Barber-Might claiming the accolade of Best Up and Coming Film Director.

Gold Winners were:

Agile Films for Veterans of Peace ‘Battlefield Casualties’

The Sweet Shop for Amnesty International ‘Viewer Discretion Advised’

The Mill for Honda ‘Ignition’

Blink Productions for John Lewis Insurance ‘Tiny Dancer’

750mph for Honda Europe ‘Feeling’

Congratulations to all the winners!

APA Presence at Ad Week 2016

Now in its fourth year, Ad Week Europe 2016 once again brought together a unique mix of industry people to consider and celebrate what’s going on in our creative communities. APA joined in by showcasing the newest innovations in VR, inviting The Mill, Framestore, Happy Finish, Unit 9, Nexus, MPC and Archer’s Mark to show guests what the future of storytelling looks like, with a mixture of terrifying, beautiful and stirring work.   

Feedback from members who attended unanimously agreed that this year the event as a whole really came into its own and gained traction. Naturally, speakers like Martin Sorrell continue to be a huge draw, but it was the talks that were slightly more obscure and “stumbled across” that really impressed. The event was also lauded as a brilliant place to network, with a wider spectrum of people to meet than you may get at other industry events, allowing for new insights into where the industry is going and what key trends we can expect to see over the following year. All in all, a great success!

APA Diversity Programme Update

We told you about our partnership with Westminster Council and Inspire, to give young people who know nothing of our industry an opportunity to learn about it.

Our update HERE tells you about our new partnership with Morpeth School in Bethnal Green and how APA members have helped sixth form pupils there by providing work experience- and how to get your company involved if you would like to be.
