CPI and ICAD joined together to launch the Young Directors Awards. The aim is to find, award and nurture the best of the up and coming directors in Ireland today. The Irish commercial and advertising industry invites young and recently established directors to enter work for consideration.
The identity is split into four segments, referencing the crosshair of a movie camera's viewfinder and the radiating ring sections suggest that the director is at the centre of the creative universe, surrounded by many moving parts.
The 2016 award ceremony took place Sugar Club on 23 February 2016 and saw a diverse range of entries with an extremely high level of quality, including 'Stutterer' by Benjamin Cleary which won the Oscars 2016 for Best Short Film.
