Edcoms picked up the coveted Grand Prix award for most awarded projects across the three qualifying schemes.

EVCOM Chairman, Andrew Winterburn, commented: We are thrilled with the support we have had from members for this new scheme. We will continue to improve the scheme and find innovative ways to showcase the winning projects. The quality of the work needs to be seen and shared. It is testament to the vibrancy and creative talent of the live and visual communications communities that make up the EVCOM membership.”
