Why enter the awards?


Standard entries are now closed for the 2023 awards. Entries for the Corporate Cause and International Impact categories close on 31 January. 

It's easy.

It's free.

It'll guarantee more views on your films.

(And here are a few more reasons...)

1. You'll reach an audience of millions

Last year, we created an additional 3.5 million views on the films that entered – and this year, the number should get even higher. Millions of views, what's not to love?

2. You'll find new supporters

More views = more supporters. Not only will people see your film, they'll also get the chance to interact with it. And they'll spread that awareness further afield.

3. It’s very, very easy to do

No, seriously. We don’t want you filling out long application forms to be able to enter your film – or take any of your cash. There’s a simple entry form, do-able in under five minutes. 

4. The ceremony is pretty great

Not to blow our own trumpet, but the ceremony announcing the Smiley Charity Film Awards winners is a pretty top-notch night. Watch a snapshot of last year’s event in just 30 seconds.
