Scottish charities and social enterprises are amongst those vying for recognition at the Charity Film Awards.

Voting is now open for the annual awards, which recognise the best use of video by charitable organisations.

There have been a record 400 films submitted and the public will now get a chance to vote for their favourite until 1 December. Last year’s event involved 300 charities.

“Charity Film Awards continues to grow its impact both in terms of the video views we generate and the numbers of votes from members of the public,” said founder Simon Burton.

“Simply taking part can provide a huge boost to a charity no matter what its size or focus.”

The categories are separated by annual income of the organisation, and all the videos can be viewed on the awards website.

The finalists will be announced in March of next year, with the awards ceremony taking place the following month in London.
