Dying Matters “A Party for Kath” up for National Award

14 September 2010
“A Party for Kath”, a five-minute film produced by the Dying Matters Coalition to demonstrate the benefits of greater openness around death and dying, has been shortlisted for ‘best video’ at this year’s IVCA Clarion Awards.

The International Visual Communications Association (IVCA) Clarion Awards aims to recognise best practice in communicating the importance of CSR, diversity, community development, ethical, health and welfare issues in the public, charity, social enterprise and corporate sectors. The IVCA Clarions make a unique contribution to both business and society, by identifying the role of the communicator in encouraging an ethical culture, and fostering higher levels of engagement with key social or environmental issues.

Hilary Fisher, Director of Dying Matters, said:

“Dying Matters is thrilled that “A Party for Kath” has been nominated for this prestigious award. The film perfectly highlights how planning for one’s death can have a positive impact on loved ones left behind and dying well is more likely to be achieved by talking about it early. The film is a unique and poignant representation of what Dying Matters stands for, and we look forward to hearing the results at the end of September.”
