makers & shakers are looking to recognise significant achievement in enabling a shift towards creating content with a smaller carbon footprint. Be it on the entrants' own production (if a production company), on those of their customers/audience (if a supplier or association of professionals), or in helping the transition to a more sustainable model.

Entrants should detail how their product, service or initiative has resulted in a reduced carbon impact in a particular area of production or the whole production. Entrants should endeavour to provide data to quantify the carbon reductions which are being detailed wherever possible .

The judges will look to rank and award the entries which have demonstrably enabled the most significant reductions.
