It’s Time to Celebrate the Art of Casting with the Casting Directors Association Awards

Once again we welcome the Casting Directors Association (CDA) awards with open arms. It’s a wonderful time every year where casting directors are acknowledged for their incredible efforts in all things castings…something we believe should happen more!

Sitting on the panel of judges this year are Claire Beale (Global Editor in Chief for Campaign); Steve Davies (Chief Executive of APA); Simon Evans (Theatre Director); Robert Glenister (Actor); Andy Levine (Head of Production at Stink Film); Tom Oxley (Photographer); Christine Payne (General Secretary of Equity).
