drp and GROSVENORFILM Win Six Awards at EVCOM Clarion Awards 2016

drp and GROSVENORFILM brought home gold with a combined six awards at the 13th annual EVCOM Clarion Awards. Held at the Seven Dials Club, 7th October, the awards recognise best practice in communicating the importance of CSR, diversity, community development, ethical, health, and education and welfare issues. Recognised in six separate categories, drp took home gold as the top ‘Event Service Provider’, two silvers for our film ‘Pull Through’ by drpvideo, and another silver award for our 35th anniversary event ‘drp35’. GROSEVNORFILM also collected two bronze awards for our film ‘mVacciNation – A Technology for Life’ with pharmaceutical giant GSK.

GROSVENORFILM received the bronze award in the ‘Innovation (Screen)’ category, and bronze in the ‘Community Engagement/Social Enterprise (Screen)’ category. The winning project, ‘mVacciNation – A Technology for Life’, shows the collaboration between health and tech. GSK has launched a revolutionary vaccination programme involving mobile technology and apps, to record patient data in clinic remote areas of Africa such as Mozambique.


The EVCOM Clarion awards are a brilliant channel to recognise CSR projects and their harrowing realities.

drpvideo secured three silvers in categories: ‘Documentary (Broadcast/Screen)’, ‘Brand Communication/Experience (Screen)’ and ‘Celebratory (Events)’ for our poignant film Pull Through, in collaboration with West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS). The short documentary re-created the moment that drp’s Ian Hough suffered a cardiac arrest during the annual boat club regatta, and emphasised that the presence of defibrillator on site saved his life. Pull Through made an instant impact, attracting coverage on several national press and media outlets including Sky News and BBC Midlands Today.

Our CEO, Dale Parmenter, commented: “The EVCOM Clarion awards are a brilliant channel to recognise CSR projects and their harrowing realities. The entire team have worked extremely hard to deliver the outstanding projects that picked up these Clarion awards and Pull Through is extremely close to our hearts. To make a difference at the other side of the world with our project with GSK is just as rewarding and valuable. To be awarded in four categories at the Clarion Awards is fantastic, and well deserved for the team.”
