The EPCA/UNESCO/IUPAC film “Chemistry : All About You” received worldwide acclaim and recognition ! On 17 April 2012, the film won a Gold Word Medal for Best PR film by the New York Festivals Awards. The film also received two IVCA (International Visual Communication Agency) Awards : one gold award for “Best Editing” and one silver award for “Best Business to Consumer Communication”. The film was also celebrated with a Cannes Dolphin Corporate Film Award for “Best Original Soundtrack”.
The New York Festivals Awards have the largest and the most international advertising awards jury in the world featuring 300 members representing 60 countries. The jury consists of a group of prominent worldwide Chief Creative Officers from the world’s best ad agencies. The Award ceremony took place in Las Vegas, USA on 17 April 2012.
An IVCA Award ceremony took place in London, UK on 23 March 2012. The IVCA awards are driven by the British visual communication industry and involve a large variety of customers (government, non-profit, blue chip companies, etc.). The projects submitted for an IVCA award are of high quality and may have a wider or a global reach.
The EPCA/UNESCO/IUPAC received its Cannes Dolphin Corporate Award in the city of Cannes, France on 17 October 2011. Like its bigger brothers the Cannes Lions and Film Festival, the Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards bring together corporations, institutions and agencies from around the globe to celebrate the best corporate film and videos, TV documentaries and reports, and online media projects. The EPCA film won its golden Dolphin Award for best music in the section “Production Arts & Crafts”.
In order to extend the shelf life of the film, it now exists without the reference to the 2011 International Year of Chemistry. To this end EPCA has created a new YouTube channel www.youtube.com/user/EPCAnetwork featuring all 14 language versions (both short and long) of the said film. The old channel EPCA2011IYC is still up and running and is daily visited by people / organisations from around the world. Both EPCA YouTube channels have produced so far more than 75,000 views. We invite you to use the revised film in your future communication activities. Should you need any special format (avi, flv, mov or other), please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org).
