Awards Photography at the Roundhouse is always epic. This was the second year the Creative Circle Honors night had been at the Roundhouse. It’s a venue with a rich past and a great backdrop for awards photography. Working here as a London Event Photographer was quite poignant for me. As a youngster I grew up nearby in Primrose Hill back in the 1980’s. At that time it was virtually derelict and inhabited by pigeons and squatters. It’s great to see that it’s now one of London’s premier venues. The Creative Circle (aka The Advertising Circle of Great Britain) is a distinguished educational awards body. It was founded way back in 1945. The Creative Circle’s mission is to promote creative excellence and support young creatives. Previous to being an event photographer I worked in the advertising industry. So as a London Event Photographer it was awesome to be here.
Awards Photography at the Roundhouse
The ceremony was hosted by Ed Morris, Jeremy Green and Edith Bowman. As the awards began dinner was served by The London Kitchen. There were 22 category awards. The finale being the Presidents award presented by Ed Morris. Edith Bowman read each nomination as work played on giant screens. The winners received trophies crafted from precision moulded concrete. Take some time out to look up the winners and their work. Especially the Refuge film ‘Don’t Cover it Up’ by BBH. During the evening Ed Morris beckoned two students that had tweeted him earlier to join him on stage. Ed challenged the audience of Creative Directors to offer the students a placement. Within seconds the Creative Circle had accomplished another mission! The entertainment highlight of the evening was the highly acclaimed band Night Engine. Another bonus when when doing awards photography at The Roundhouse. Can’t wait to go back next year.
