CDA Inaugural Awards Ceremony 2017

This spring will see the first ever award ceremony in the UK to honour the work of the Casting Director.

On Friday 17th March the Casting Directors Association will hold their inaugural awards in London. The awards will celebrate the art of casting – finding the perfect talent for every role.

The CDA Awards is open to all its members and has categories that recognise casting for Film, Commercials and Music Videos.

Controversially, the work of the Casting Director has remained unsung when it comes to major awards.

In recent years there has been a call for award bodies such as The Academy Awards (the Oscars) and BAFTA to recognise the invaluable contribution they make to the industry.

The CDA Awards are paving the way forward.

Further information including ticket sales will be available at the end of January
