CICLOPE AFRICA – FIRST AFRICAN FILM CRAFT AWARD
10th April, 2018 – Cape Town
CICLOPE Africa is the first African award show fully dedicated to craft in advertising and moving image.
Unlike other events in the region, CICLOPE Africa focuses on the art of execution, rather than the ideas. Whether it’s a TV commercial, a mobile app or an interactive installation, we truly believe a good execution is as important as the idea, and extremely determinant for the consumer’s experience.
CICLOPE Africa recognizes and awards the work of African professionals in different categories such as Direction, Animation, Visual Effects, Cinematography, Branded Content and Original Music, among others.
After an online judging session, the 3 best ranked entries in each category will be considered finalists and will be included in the CICLOPE Africa’s Showcase (a collection of the best works of the year in the region) that will take place in Cape Town, on Tuesday 10th April.
The day before, Monday 9th April, the Executive Jury will gather to watch the winning entries, decide on the one best work in each category and choose one Grand Prix for the best work of the year in the competition. The entries selected by the Executive Jury as the best in their categories and the Grand Prix will automatically become finalists at CICLOPE Festival 2018 (to be held on November 8 and 9 in Berlin) on the corresponding category. The Grand Prix’s entrant company will also be invited to join CICLOPE Festival 2018’s Executive Jury and be part of the exclusive group of prefessionals that decide on the world’s most well-crafted works of the year.
