Craig Ellis - Awards Director

Creative Director at FOX Networks Group Europe & Africa

A BIT ABOUT CRAIG: After a few years directing and producing corporate videos, Craig first hit the broadcast world with a stint at National Geographic Channel, directing, editing and generally taking every opportunity to have fun in the world of promos.  12 years and 12 channel brands later (not to mention a little stop-over at the BBC) Craig is now the Creative Director for the multi-award winning European Creative Services hub at FOX Networks Group based in London, his most recent task being to restructure the team from its original UK remit to one who will try their hands at anything at anyplace…almost. Aside from picking up a few awards himself, Craig has also been a judge for numerous PromaxBDA UK competitions as well as the Promo judge for the Kinsale Sharks in 2013.

PROMAXBDA UK BOARD ROLE: Craig will lead the annual review of awards categories, ensuring we are current and relevant. He will oversee the awards night from a creative perspective with annual volunteer chairs (Awards night admin, planning & production will still be in the safe hands of Tony Jackson with IDS). Tim Hughes will continue to look after judging and will work closely with Craig.
