Branded Shorts 2021, which was held in June, also focused on the theme of recruiting (Human Resources), an important aspect that companies are paying great attention to.

Statement from Deloitte Digital Japan Lead Go Miyashita:

As interest in social significance in addition to economic value increases, expectations for branded movies are rising as a communication tool between companies and society. With this award, I hope that this will be an opportunity to create a “New” way of delivering the message that companies and society want to convey, and to expand the possibilities of branded movies. We look forward to receiving submissions from many creators.
