The Art Of Creativity Awards


International Awards Event for Production and Post Production Companies
Judged by Artistic Curators from around the Globe

 

THE INSIGHT

The Art of Creativity Awards is an international awards event that takes place at Soho House venues worldwide. It honors the work of production and post production companies that have transformed the making of commercials and music videos into art and entertainment. Work is judged for its artistic value and creativity by distinguished international art, museum and cinematic curators. AOC aims to bridge the worlds of art and advertising and serve as a platform that gets the conversation going in two parallel creative worlds.

Award Categories


Award Categories


COMMERCIAL ENTRIES (including Case Studies)

Great Storytelling  If this were a book it'd be a page turner. Or, when viewing it has you think 'absolutely sharing this one, who won't relate to it?' 

Exceptional Cinematography  The WOW factor! That is to say, I can mute the sound and still have my eyes glued to the screen. A creative work of art. Stellar lighting, amazing camera work, and a unique visual way of telling a story.  

Outstanding Visual Effects  Holy $%#! Is this for real?! The answer we're looking for is no.

Best Direction  When a performance is so on point that you feel the director's skills are successfully seeping through.

Innovative Digital Craft  Aptly blending content with technology, made to create an engaging user experience.

Spectacular Animation  An ode to those who imagine, and create... All while sitting behind a screen - not a camera.

Creative Sound Design  The feeling that you became a part of the commercial thanks to the sound surrounding you.

Stellar Editing  Telling a story by way of sensational editing techniques.

Long Format Branded Content   All those videos you share that merge style with substance and resonate with you on an emotional level... only to realize that it's actually branded entertainment.

MUSIC VIDEO ENTRIES
maximum length 6 minutes

Whether a story is to be told, a mind blowing performance is to be seen, or music to be heard, we're looking for the best in each of these categories. Show us what you got! 

Best All Around Music Video  "Unforgettable" says the viewer after repeated play...

Exceptional Cinematography  Mesmerizing shots that help tell the story.

Great Storytelling  Some of the greatest stories told are the ones that artfully combine great music with a great story.

Outstanding Visual Effects  We think it's real... but it's not.

Stellar Editing You've just proved that your editing skills were critical to the success of this video.

The Art Behind the Award


The Art Behind the Award


The Art of Creativity Award can be considered a work of art in and of itself. They also happen to double as a kaleidoscope. Each piece is meticulously handcrafted by an American artist named Steve Coleman. Steve has been crafting unique kaleidoscope creations for over the past thirty years from his hometown in Oklahoma. Every AOC award has been individually designed and you won't find any two alike, making the award as original as the awarded winning work. The scopes are made from the finest materials available, including the use of the highest quality first surface mirrors, unusual wood and often adding whimsical lego, tools and other unique objects that can be enjoyed when soaking up all the fanciful images that a kaleidoscope brings to the eye.
