Your 6th Charity Film Awards winners

We want to take this opportunity to thank every single charity that entered the awards last year. As you know, being part of the campaign gives charities the opportunity to spread awareness of their important causes and missions to make our world a better place.

So whether you were an entrant, a finalist, or a winner, just know that more people know about your cause-based film than they did before you entered!

It's been a fantastic journey with you all and we can't wait to see what you enter in 2024. 

So without further ado, here are your 2023 winners and People's Choice winners. Congratulations to all!
