THE INSIGHT

The Art of Creativity Awards is an international awards event that takes place at Soho House clubs 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 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 between two parallel creative worlds.

Award Categories


COMMERCIAL ENTRIES (including Case Studies)  
maximum length 5 minutes

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. 

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

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

Memorable 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. 

Our winning compilation reels are now a part of The British Film Institute National Archive and The Paley Center for Media in New York and Los Angeles' permanent collection.

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 who has been crafting unique kaleidoscope creations for over the past thirty years. Awards have been specially designed for AOC, making them 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.
