The Casting Directors’ Guild (CDG) will present its first Casting Awards on Tuesday 12 February 2019 at Ham Yard Hotel London. This new event, in partnership with Spotlight, will be the first UK Awards ceremony to celebrate the significant achievements of casting in the fields of Theatre, TV, Film and Commercials. EON Productions are sponsoring The CDG Award for Outstanding Contribution to Casting.
Qualifying productions will have premiered between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018. Members of the Casting Directors’ Guild have already submitted productions for consideration, naming the Casting Director and where relevant, any credited Casting Associate and/or Casting Assistant. The CDG first voting process is now taking place to create a shortlist of productions in the five main categories to produce the nomination shortlist – due to be released January 2019. Members of the Guild will subsequently vote for the winner in each category.
