A portion of the proceeds from each round of awards is given to selected 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit organizations.
Videos must be eight minutes long or less. If the language used is important, it must be English.
Videos must have been released in the current or prior year of the round being entered.
All entries must available for review online. This protects your content, as we never have possession of your video files if you so choose. They can be password protected. You simply send us a link and password if one is required. The video must be kept available for the duration of the award period. You can use sites such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Vimeo, and YouTube.
Each entry in each category is $85.
Judges experienced from a range background experience review entries. Each video is evaluated on its own merits and not in comparison to others. This means there are no set number of winners in any category. In some rounds, no one may secure Gold or Silver in a category while in another group, more than one video may receive the same recognition level.
Consideration is given to the resources available to a production. Funny is funny, informative is informative. A video made with a modest budget and local talent can be as effective as an expensive national spot. We honor excellence at every level and appreciate that regional content may not have the same means as a international company.
