The FOCAL International Awards, celebrate the very best use of archival footage across the creative and cultural industries. From cinematic features to the use of footage in advertising or branded content; there is no doubting the immediacy and power that footage can bring, which this unique award competition recognises.
We also acknowledge the best examples of archive restoration and preservation practice as well as the people and companies that make up the industry and without whose hard work and vision none of this would be possible.
We are delighted to open up entries for the 2024 FOCAL International Awards.
Company of the Year and Footage Person of the Year categories are open for submissions. Jane Mercer Researcher of the Year is open.
