While there’s nothing we love more than a good traditional 30-second TVC, there’s also a big place in our hearts for the longer branded short film format. That’s why we’ve devoted lengthy sessions over the past few days to deliberate over some awesome pieces of work from the past year to present a best of the best list which makes up our shortlist for 2012.
The line-up is an impressive one which includes work for a host of clients and products by some of the most successful and creative international agencies and production companies. But the fate of the group is now in the hands of the category's six judges [see bottom of story] and the winner will be announced on 22 November at the awards show in London.

The shots Awards 2012 is supported by Palma Pictures with Saddington Baynes, Engage and Experience, Sarida Bossoni and 1000Volt all sponsoring categories.
