The Event and Visual Communication Association (EVCOM) held its Fellowship Awards at the House of Lords on Friday, in which Julian Pullan, vice chairman, president international at Jack Morton Worldwide and actor Hugh Bonneville were made fellows.

The awards were presented by Lord Watson of Richmond CBE at the EVCOM Fellowship Lunch; held to celebrate leading individuals in live and visual communications.

Pullan and Bonneville now join a long list of illustrious EVCOM Fellows including John Simpson CBE, Baroness Martha Lane Fox, Lord Attenborough CBE, Bob Geldof KBE, Sir Trevor MacDonald, Dame Anita Roddick, Sir Bruce Forsyth, Lord Michael Grade and Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson.

"I’m a great believer in the power our industry has to engage with people in an extraordinary way and EVCOM plays a critical role in promoting this work," said Pullan. "So I’m thrilled to be awarded the EVCOM Fellowship – it’s a great honour to be recognised by this illustrious body."

Presenting Julian Pullan with his Fellowship Award, EVCOM board member Andrew Smith said: "My memories of working with Julian are filled with respect for just how visioned he is. I recall conversations about specifics on video edits or music choices and it was so very clear that the passion for our craft came right from the top."
