Back with a Bang:
Winners announced for makers & shakers Awards 2021

The winners have been revealed for this year’s makers & shakers Awards. The ceremony took place at BAFTA Piccadilly on Wednesday 8th December 2021 and was kindly supported by Neom, Cinema Tech, Maui County Film Office and Ouarzazate Film Commission from Morocco.

Launched by The Location Guide, makers magazine and FOCUS, the Awards revealed the winners of its six categories after rigorous judging by leading industry figures. Hosted by the hilarious comedian and long-suffering Crystal Palace fan Chloe Petts, the 2021 edition of makers & shakers Awards celebrated the very best ideas and initiatives from the global film, television, advertising and games industries. Key issues within the industry (such as sustainability, mental health, and diversity and inclusion) were tackled by this year’s nominees. Competition was fierce - but after much consideration, our judges announced their winners.

We are exceedingly grateful to all our entrants from all over the globe, ” says The Location Guide’s managing director, Jean-Frédéric Garcia. “ The ceremony recognises success and diligence across the screen industries. In times of great uncertainty, so many stood strong. It was a wonderful privilege celebrating the hard work and creativity from the international production community.
