Select the category that most closely relates to your submission's type of genre. There is an entry fee for each category you enter. Individual entries are evaluated for their intrinsic merits – without comparing them with others. Each entry is, in effect, in competition with itself, and is measured by our international award-winning jury of experts using an industry-accepted standard of excellence.

A musician may enter multiple achievements in a category if the achievements are for different programs.

The award committee reserves the right to increase the number of nominees in any category.

The award committee reserves the right to not have ANY nominees in a category if the work submitted does not reach our level of excellence.
See Categories listing for definitions and additional explanations.


Finalists will be announced Feb 1st and the winners will be announced at an awards ceremony held Los Angeles in March 2018. A laureate will be sent to winning contacts following the awards presentation.

Tickets are available for purchase on FilmFreeway. Each nominated project will receive ONE (1) complimentary ticket to attend the show regardless of the number of nominations or number of individuals in the submitted project. Additional tickets may be purchased on FilmFreeway.


When submitting your credits, be aware that if your entry is a winner the name of the category, and title of the entry will appear on the award which is given to each winning entry. We also include the year of the competition. Finalists, when notified, will be given the opportunity to update and correct credits. However, if no corrections are made, credits listed during the entry process will be considered the credits of record.
