One of the slickest perks of our jobs is getting to work with a host of creatives brought together through music, from directors to makeup artists. We were chuffed to see not one, not two but three of our acts music video's nominated in the YDA 2018 with Bitch Falcon – Of Heart directed by Kate Dolan, to The Blizzards – Show Me The Science directed by Jeff Doyle & Shaun Ryan to the The Strypes – Behind Closed Doors directed by Finn Keenan all nominated in the Music Video category.

This is the third year that CPI and ICAD have collaborated to find, award and nurture Ireland’s best up and coming directors. On February 10, our judges (Lorcan Finnegan, Lorraine Geoghegan, Fiona McGarry, Mark Tuthill) came together in Screen Scene to discuss the work and select our winners.
