Mini form: 0 – 30 seconds
Short form: 31 seconds – 10 minutes
Long form: Over 10 minutes
4 For films entered into additional categories, there will be a discounted entry fee. For example, if you submit a film or series into three categories, the fee would be: $449 + $315 + $315 = $1079. If you are submitting a film or series into multiple categories, please upload the film/s separately each time.
5 All entries must be submitted online at brandfilmawards.secure-platform.com/a.
6 There is a section for you to submit confidential information that only the jurors will see (200 words max). Nothing written in this section of the form will be published.
7 All entries must be submitted and paid for online. You may input your entry information and save as a “draft” to return at a later date to submit payment. All films must be submitted and paid for by the entry deadline; January 22, 2020. Credit cards accepted include Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. Entries not paid for prior to judging will not be considered.
8 Please, no commercials. Though it resists easy definition, branded content typically focuses on a story rather than a brand, product or service. Jurors reserve the right to reject any entry they feel does not meet this definition.
