On 30 April 2014 we enjoyed our 11th FOCAL International Awards in association with AP Archive hosted by history presenter DAN SNOW.
These awards are, without doubt, the leading and most complete set of awards for the archive footage business in the world today. We celebrate the best use of footage material in all variety of genre, across all media platforms and also recognise the researchers, technicians and producers that access, maintain and use this precious resource. The 18 award categories are listed on the 'Category' tab for '2014 Awards' on the left side of this page. The qualifying period was any relevant production, project or work premiered in 2013.
The gala dinner and awards presentation ceremony, is held annually in April or May at the London Lancaster Hotel. It's a great evening hosted by DAN SNOW. The sparkling reception sponsored by AP Archive begins at 6.15pm with the call for dinner at 6.45pm. The sit down 3 course meal is attended by leading professionals in the archive industry and allied post-production services. You'll have plenty of time for networking at the after party also sponsored by AP Archive! The evening ends at 1pm. Dress is formal, black tie/evening dress. Strictly no jeans!
If you wish to stay overnight at the hotel then preferential rates can be organised.
