Relive the last edition of the festival

A renowned competition

500 entries, 3 competitions

The festival brings together the best of responsible audiovisual since 2012. More than 500 films from all over the world, committed to ecology and social responsibility, compete each year for the Grand Prix and the Golden Trophy in the festival's 3 competitions:


advertising films or awareness campaigns of less than 90 seconds


corporate or educational films under 25 minutes


documentary films, reports, TV programs or fiction films over 25 minutes.
To cover all environmental issues, the festival has opened 15 thematic categories around the environment and CSR in each competition.

Prestigious trophies

The exceptional jury, made up of some forty professionals from the environmental, communication and audiovisual fields, selects the finalists for each category of the 3 competitions, eligible for the Gold or Silver Trophy in their category.

Then, during the two days of the festival, the jury deliberates on the film that will win the Gold Trophy in its category following screenings of each film and discussions with the film teams present in Deauville. All of the Gold winners are then eligible to win the coveted Grand Prize of their competition.

A place to discover new trends

Through the screening of the 100 finalist films of the annual competition in the presence of the teams, numerous workshops and expert round tables, the festival inspires and gives the tools to scientists and makers as well as producers, broadcasters and advertisers to speak with sincerity about the environmental and societal issues we are facing.

In the Innovation marketplace, festival-goers can meet audiovisual and sustainable development exhibitors who share innovative and eco-responsible shooting, post-production and digital solutions.

A program open to the general public

For several years now, the Deauville Green Awards have taken action to bring committed audiovisual creation to a wider audience.

The festival organizes public screenings in the presence of production teams and scientific experts in Deauville, but also in schools and high schools throughout Normandy, during the year.

At the same time, the festival is putting the spotlight on the young generation of committed filmmakers and video artists through two competitions:

> Young Norman Video Competition: a competition of mini-films dedicated to social networks for Norman creators from 12 to 25 years old, focusing on their view of ecological news.

> Young Creative Awards competition: an international competition for filmmakers under 30 years old who are activists for ecology, gathering 500 films each year.
