You might recall that I have posted about Adcan before. For those who can’t recall such a thing, or are new to the blog (hi!), Adcan is a not-for-profit award scheme started by my friend Brydon Gerus and now run by several of our friends.

ADCAN is a #makegood movement that mobilises the film and advertising industries to make a real difference in the world. Our free-to-enter film competition offers up-and-coming talent good opportunities to do good work for good causes.
