The Casting Directors Association, an alliance of professional UK casting directors, held their annual CDA Awards online on September 18 — the first time this ceremony has been held virtually, in light of COVID-19. The CDA Awards honor casting directors for their exceptional talent in categories ranging from International Commercial to Film & Drama. Casting Networks® has been a proud sponsor of this event since 2017.

This year’s winners include Kharmel Cochrane for Open Media, Sue Odell for Best Children’s Casting and Anna Kennedy for Best Casting – Online Commercial. The full list of winners can be found on CDA’s Instagram page. 

Luke Brady, Casting Networks’ Manager of Client Relations, United Kingdom, shares, “Casting Networks had the honor of presenting an award in the Best Open Media category. It was fantastic to join everyone on the night and celebrate with everyone virtually.” 

Casting Networks would like to congratulate all the nominees, winners and honorees at this year’s CDA Awards. We look forward to attending in future years and continuing to support and advocate for the amazing work of casting directors across the globe.
