Mission Statement

To showcase and celebrate the digital creativity of our members and the wider industry to illustrate the power of digital creativity.

About the council

The UK is fortunate to be able to draw from a rich pool of digital creativity. The Creative Council was established to celebrate that creativity, explore our craft and encourage emerging talent. The Council also showcases the great work created and produced in the UK, working to create opportunities for members and partners to collaborate with like-minded organisations in Britain and beyond, and promote the UK as a centre for open, diverse and world class creativity.
