There’s one week left from today (July 26th) to enter the UK Music Video Awards 2017 – the deadline is next Wednesday, August 2nd.
Entries are being made to over 30 categories this year, as the UKMVAs covers the best work in British and international music videos by music genre, technical expertise, and individual achievement.
The music genre categories for Best Pop, Dance, Indie/Rock, Alternative and Urban – which include sub-categories for UK, international and newcomer videos (the latter made for under GB£5K) – have seen entries pouring in from home and abroad. But there’s still time to get your videos in front of the judges.
In the technical categories, there is the customary range of awards to celebrate the art and craft of music video production – Animation, Choreography, Cinematography, Colour Grading, Editing, Production Design, Styling (including wardrobe, hair and makeup styling) and Visual Effects.
The Individual categories for individual achievement throughout the eligibility period, for Best Director, Best New Director, Best Producer, Best Commissioner and Best Music Artist. In addition there is a brand new category, Best Production Company. Like the individual categories, this new award will be judged bestowed according to the judges' decision on the most exceptional body of work over the past year.
Additional categories include Best Interactive Video, and two live music categories, Best Live Concert and Best Live Session, replacing the single live music award of previous years.
Full definitions of all the categories are available at ukmva.com/categories. Submission of entries - either for a video entry, or an individual - is also made at the UK Music Video Awards website. The cost per entry is £75+VAT.
Video entries should be work that has been completed and approved by the commissioner in the 12 months from August 1st 2016 to July 31st 2017.
