Media Trust wins three awards at prestigious 2016 EVCOM Clarion Awards

Posted 7 October 2016

At today’s EVCOM Clarion Awards ceremony communications charity, Media Trust, collected three awards for films it has created on behalf of the charities Population Matters, Living Streets and Chance for Childhood.

Media Trust’s in-house production team was recognised in each of the three categories it was nominated for, picking up a Gold, Silver and Bronze award in the Environmental (Screen), Education/Training (Screen) and Celebratory (Screen) categories, respectively.

Media Trust, which helps other charities and community groups to develop their communications skills and tell their stories, was the only charity to feature among the 31 organisations shortlisted for the 2016 EVCOM Clarion Awards, which recognise CSR and Sustainability creative and high impact film content.

Its short film for Population Matters, a population and sustainability charity, was awarded a Gold award in the Environmental (Screen) category. The film takes a humorous faux-documentary approach, backed up with key statistics and references to global population concerns, to addresses the issue of overpopulation in the UK.

These awards are testament to our ability to develop content that delivers impact for charities, often operating with limited resource. We look forward to telling many more stories in the future.

Wendy Pearce, Head of Content at Media Trust

Wendy Pearce, Head of Content at Media Trust, said: “In an increasingly competitive landscape, creating content that cuts through and gets your message across to the right audience is paramount, not only to the success of an organisation but potentially for its ongoing survival. Making creative content that helps our charity clients to tell their story is what Media Trust is here for. We are privileged to work with a wide variety of charitable organisations and we encourage them to explore creative solutions that sometimes push them beyond their comfort zone.”

Media Trust’s short animation for Living Streets’ ‘Walk to School’ campaign won the Silver award in the Education/Training (Screen) category. It brings kids’ shoes to life and they encourage more young people to get walking.

Be a Street Child’s Superhero is a short animation produced by Media Trust for Chance for Childhood, a charity that helps child-headed households, street children, child soldiers, those traumatised by violence and conflict, and children born into trafficking and prostitution. Taking the Bronze award in the Celebratory (Screen) category, the film highlights Chance for Childhood’s work to improve every area of these children’s lives.
