For over 20 years the Shark Awards has been uncovering the brightest new directors to help satisfy the thirst for new blood. Fresh faces often bring a distinctive way of looking at things, giving an opportunity to produce work from an original perspective - it's a well known method to help elevate a film above the general clutter of everyday noise. With the explosion in demand for moving image content there has also been an accompanying rise in the requirement for those two vital supporting skills; cinematography and editing.

The contribution, effort and brilliance of these two particular crafts are integral to the success of any project. For new talent, Kinsale is a wonderful way to create awareness.  By promoting excellence to the hottest ad agencies and production companies on the planet, Kinsale provides a wonderful opportunity to get yourwork under the noses of those important decision makers who are always looking for the next best thing.
