All works will be graded on various items
including creativity, technical merit and execution of ideas.
Entries do not compete directly against one another. They are judged
on their own merits within the standards of their respective
category. In other words, a big budget commercial will be judged by
a different set of standards than a low budget training video. A
nominating committee will view and recommend entries to qualify as
Finalists. From there they will be viewed by our panel of judges and
go through a complex scoring system to determine if they are a
winner. A category may have several winners or possibly none at all.
Judges are seasoned professionals in the industry with an average of
over 20 years experience. As a group they have a diverse background
representing all areas of production including cinematography,
videography, art direction, editing, sound, scriptwriting, animation
and visual effects.
For long format entries, judges may at their discretion scan through
areas to efficiently judge the piece. They are only required to view
the first 10 minutes. These entries may include the entire program
or a shorter clip that is representative of the work.
