Here Are the Winners of the 2021 Creative Circle Awards
The Creative Circle has today announced the winners of its 2021 awards, following the 76th annual awards ceremony hosted by Zoe Lyons at the inaugural UK Creative Festival.
The evening saw all of this year’s Gold, Silver, Bronze and special prizes awarded in a celebration of the very best work from the UK’s creative community. Taking place on the Thursday evening of the UK Creative Festival at Dreamland, Margate, the ceremony was part of the three-day event that featured talks, workshops, panels, and wellness activities - designed to connect, educate, and inspire. Organised by OrangeDoor, the outdoor event saw all the aspiring young creatives invited to attend for free - as guests of the Creative Circle.
Uncommon Creative Studio was presented with Most Creative Agency for the second year running. RiffRaff Films was awarded Most Creative Production Company, whilst The Mill and Electric Theatre Collective shared the Most Creative Post Production Company title.
