Here at Creativepool we're always proud to support creative awards that strive to make a difference. While we all eagerly wait for the deadline of our prestigious Annual 2020 awards, our partners at Creative Circle have forged ahead with their own prize and have just announced the winners of this year's edition.
Campaigns and agencies alike competed for a place in the exclusive circle, which will now feature works from Uncommon, ITV and more.
The show was hosted entirely online, free to view for everyone. The Creative Circle pledged 10% of all award entry fees and 100% of membership fees to support greater diversity in the creative departments of the future through the Creative Circle Foundation.
Creative Circle Awards 2020 Winners Announced
Uncommon has secured Most Creative Agency. Stink was awarded Most Creative Production Company, whilst Time Based Arts went on to pick up Most Creative Post Production Company for the second year running.
ITV’s ‘Britain Get Talking’ campaign took home the coveted Gold of Golds, seeing ITV, Uncommon Creative Studio, and Pulse Films all collect these special awards.
Creative Circle retained its free to enter New Talent categories for 2020. Following tough debate from the jury, the Most Promising Female Creative Newcomer was awarded to duo Shan & Beth at BBC Creative, while the Most Promising Male Creative Newcomer to Arthur Harry & Ludo Thomas at The&Partnership.
In the production new talent categories, the Best Up and Coming Female Commercial Director award went to Knucklehead’s Charlotte Regan, with RiffRaff’s Finn Keenan walking away with Best Up and Coming Male Commercial Director.
Managing Director at Creative Circle Jeremy Green comments: “Firstly, congratulations to all our well-deserved winners! Whilst we hadn’t expected to be hosting our show virtually at the start of this year, we are so glad to have still had the opportunity to celebrate the best of UK creativity and make it free to view for everyone.
"This year is one the industry won’t forget in a hurry. It has not only presented unforeseen social, political and financial challenges but it has put the way we run our businesses and employ talent under much needed closer scrutiny. Our creative industries must keep connecting - even if it must be virtually - to learn, grow and survive this pandemic.”
This year’s show included a special announcement from Jeremy Green about a new venture for 2021 - the UK Creative Festival. Imploring the UK creative industries, Jeremy called for support for the new event which aims to continue the Creative Circle and the Creative Foundation’s work to forge new and accessible pathways into the creative industries for young people in the UK.
