Diversity wins at second Shiny Awards for emerging directors

Promonews - 27th Feb 2019

The second Shiny Awards took place in London last night (February 26th) with eight awards handed out to emerging directors, who are unsigned or recently signed, for their work - from music videos to short films - submitted to this year's competition.

All the work was screened on the night at the event held at The Mill, with the audience picking IggyLDN's Fatherhood - directed by IggyLDN himself - as the winner of the Audience Award on the night, which he received at the event from APA MD Steve Davies (below).

There were three female winners and three directors of colour among the eight winners, with the winning directors coming from the UK, Ireland, Germany and the United States.  

Caroline Bottomley, Director of the Shiny Awards, has commented, "We're very pleased to recognise eight exciting new directors - and that the voting system means we're getting good representation across diverse categories."
