The winning projects were selected at the final virtual round of judging held on Thursday 18th November.

Europe makes its mark this year with Latvia and Italy being recognised among the Immortals and Commendations for the first time ever.

Hungry Man has equalled the current record by securing a third Immortal Award for True Name, following two wins in 2019.

Somesuch continues to uphold its standard of quality, having been recognised among the Immortals and Commendations each year since the inaugural awards in 2018.

Building on the competition’s growth last year, there was a 14% increase in the number of entrant companies in 2021, from 541 in 2020 to 619 in 2021.

This year’s global jury maintained the incredibly high standards set by the juries in the competition’s first three years, limiting the number of Immortal winners to four - the same number as 2018, 2019, and 2020 - while also keeping the number of Commendations low, at just six.

Matt Cooper, founder of Little Black Book, comments: "Four years in, we are so proud of what the Immortal Awards is fast becoming. Our dream was to do something different; to be free to enter, hard to win and to celebrate truly great work. It is also about showing this work to the world, which we will continue to do globally in cinemas and in-house. Our belief is that country-by-country we can really help the world see the greatest work and inspire them to make it. Now we want to push The Immortal Awards a whole lot further. Next year, we aim to do local judging on the ground in many more countries before returning to in-person regional and global finals - and we are so excited."

Paul Monan, awards director of The Immortal Awards, comments: "With the introduction of local jury days, this year’s judging has been a phenomenal experience. Having listened to creatives around the world, our belief is that the work judged locally by locals, then regionally with hand-picked locals, and then globally with some of our regional jurors, would get discussed and distilled in a way that has never been done before and it paid off. Thank you to our jurors this year and, of course, a huge congratulations to the four Immortal winners and the six Commendation recipients on their achievements as our juries were as tough as we've ever seen."
