Awards and Recognition

We have various opportunities to win awards and be recognized for your work.

Category Requirements

Each category must have a minimum of 3 submissions in order to remain as an award category. If a category is cancelled the film will be eligible for the following year’s awards. Films from cancelled categories will not be refunded. We reserve the right to cancel any award category for any reason.
