LIVE AWARDS – RULES OF ENTRY AND HOW TO ENTER

Rules of Entry

EVCOM has the right to refuse late entries.

Projects may be entered into more than one category.

Responsibility for entering the correct category lies solely with the entrant.

Entries must not have been submitted into previous EVCOM Live Awards that won.

All additional and supporting materials must be supplied digitally. Materials submitted by post will not be reviewed by the judges.

Entrants may submit additional material to support entries. All materials to be considered by the judges must be uploaded at the time of submission.  You can attach up to three files which can be Word documents, JPEG images, PDF documents or PowerPoint presentations.

In the interests of easy judging, entrants are advised not to link to films/projects which require lengthy downloading (more than 5 minutes) and should submit their films via the upload link in ‘Step 3’ of the entry site.

Responsibility for the technical quality of the film and/or any supporting materials lies with the entrant.

Defective material will automatically be disqualified.

The judges may disqualify an entry if insufficient or incorrect information is given on the form.

Websites and online entries will require a full URL and any necessary usernames and passwords.

Entries must either be in English, subtitled in English or accompanied by a translation of the script in English.

All projects must have been cleared for copyright. EVCOM assumes this has been undertaken.

Unless stated otherwise by the entrant, material for award-winning entries will be kept by the EVCOM for use at EVCOM events, screenings and on the EVCOM website.

Eligibility period – All projects entered for the Live Awards must have taken place between January 2016 – June 2017.

Judging

All judges are required to agree to a confidentiality agreement. Judges are invited by EVCOM on the basis of their industry experience and expertise and are required to be absolutely impartial in their judgements. Judges are guided by these rules and the criteria published to entrants for each category.

Individuals who have worked on, or had any personal or commercial involvement in a project entered are allowed to judge but will not be assigned to judge any category that their company has entered.

Judging will take place June and July 2017.
