The birth of The SmallRig Awards means that more and more people realize that images are becoming the mainstream narrative way in the world. In terms of showing public welfare and spreading public welfare, images are more authentic, infectious and universal than words. In the current era when everyone is a video creator, it is a very good narrative means to record public welfare with images and promote it. The link between the Smog Award and the China Public Welfare Image Festival is an innovative mode of integrating video and public welfare. We hope that through the connection of professional and commercial forces, video and public welfare empathy, love and warmth will happen.

"In today's world, imagery serves as a global social language and communication tool, driving widespread empathy and influence. Rapid advancements in imaging technology and streaming platforms have democratized visual creation, fueling the surge of the imaging scene industry,"stated Zhou Yang "We believe our new initiatives are about contributing to that change, promoting content that goes beyond entertainment to make a real-world impact."
