Presenter and body-confidence campaigner, Chessie King will host the 2018 Charity Film Awards on Friday 11th May. Taking place at Central Hall Westminster, the awards will celebrate the very best films and videos created for, or on behalf of, registered charities within the UK.

Chessie has become an inspiration to many due to her honest and open attitude to life with her realistic, unedited images and body positivity posts, resulting in her becoming a Global Ambassador for Nike Women & JD Women. Chessie has also worked with highly respected brands, such as Unilever - All Things Hair, Evian, Dorothy Perkins, Garnier, Hello! Magazine, and been a part of campaigns for various charities, including United Nations Women and Team GB.
Chessie commented; “I’m delighted to be hosting the Charity Film Awards. The use of film is incredibly important to ensure charities’ messages are heard and I’m looking forward to seeing which films win this year’s awards.”

The 38 Finalists for the Charity Film Awards include charities and CICs of all sizes, covering health awareness, medical research, sports, children, environmental issues, animals and education. In addition to the turnover categories, the films are also competing for the People’s Choice Award which will be won by the film that receives the most public votes. To date, over 44,000 members of the public have voted for their favourite film.

We’re imaginative, enterprising, occasionally eccentric and very well connected. We fascinated by the opportunities that combining social media and events creates and the way in which “technology” and “live” can work together.

We have worked on events, projects and campaigns of all shapes and sizes, all around the world. Our clients include venues, destinations, event service suppliers and event organisers. We understand dynamics of these businesses and the event industry landscape which means our creative ideas are always underscored by commercial realism.
