OF THE INDUSTRY
21ST APRIL 2017
Three years ago, ADCAN set out to create an award show that sparked a #makegood movement. We focused on breaking undiscovered filmmakers into the industry by having them create content for charities and non-profits in need. Today, we're happy to share that ADCAN is now an international organisation with fresh branding and a new platform. We will also be hosting both our awards ceremony and our winners workshops in Los Angeles this year for the first time ever. We're excited to welcome companies like VICE and Anonymous Content to our jury too, expanding the opportunities for ADCAN's diverse set of content creators and to encourage filmmakers to submit content in all of its forms.
The competition is still free to enter and this years charities have been handpicked to address concerns that affect all of us, both locally and globally. We've developed the creative briefs alongside each charity, insuring the films being created can be put to immediate use supporting each cause.
ADCAN is only as strong as the community around it and we're more sure of that than ever, so we've created a platform to support the community outside of award show season as well. ADCAN Platform introduces businesses and other charities focused on positive global impact with the creatives most passionate and most qualified to help them create content that's idea led, mission driven and action inducing.
As ADCAN continues to grow and evolve, our mission still remains the same; to support people who want to make a difference in both their career and in the world, at the same time.
Over the next few weeks, we'll be introducing you to more of our jury members and sharing updates on previous award winners all through our new editorial arm, ZAG, which focuses on building a stronger, more united voice for ADCAN and our industry as a whole.
