We support a range of sponsorships that either support the industries in which our diverse clients work within or initiatives that help to nurture and support the community of which our regional offices are part.
The Grierson Awards commemorate the pioneering Scottish documentary filmmaker John Grierson (1898 – 1972), famous for Drifters and Night Mail and the man widely regarded as the father of the documentary. Established in 1972, the Grierson Awards recognise and celebrate documentaries from Britain and abroad that have made a significant contribution to the genre and that demonstrate quality, integrity, creativity, originality and overall excellence.
We have supported the Grierson Awards since 2012 strengthening our relationship with the British documentary film industry to highlight the services provided by our Commercial Media Banking team. As well as being headline sponsor, Coutts is supporting the Grierson Trustees Award, given to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to documentary.
