CONGRATULATIONS to the charity Surfers Against Sewage for their film The Creature, which has won this year’s First News Charity Film Award.
The awards were set up to recognise some of the amazing films that charities are producing, either to promote important messages or raise funds. These short films can provoke wider discussion on big issues, as well as amuse, inspire and entertain us. The Creature reminds us of the damage that our throwaway culture is doing to the planet.
Thanks to all those First News readers that voted in this special category. Wildcat90 commented: “I thought the creature was beautifully made and really emphasised the effect we have on our oceans.”
