The FOCAL International Awards competition is dedicated to the promotion and celebration of archival footage and its contribution to the creative and cultural industries. We are delighted to announce this year’s shortlist in the Production Categories.
The 2021 competition received a wide variety of submissions making it an undeniably rich and diverse contest, a challenge but rewarding deliberation process for our dedicated jurors across the globe; a testament to the continuing and growing power of archival storytelling.
Impressive usage and previously unseen footage across a broad range of productions from Cinematic Features to Advertising & Branded Content can be discovered in our Production Categories of nominees for this year's FOCAL International Awards.
The shortlist for the Jane Mercer Researcher of the Year and Restoration & Preservation Categories will be announced in the coming weeks.
We would like to thank everyone who entered their work; the quality of the 2021 submissions has been exceptional.
