There’s just over four days left from today (August 4th) to enter work into the UK Music Video Awards 2017 – the premiere awards show for music video creativity in Britain and beyond, and the big party of the year for UK music videos.
This includes the eight Technical Achievement awards which will honour the creativity and technical prowess of individuals working on a specific music video, celebrating the art and craft on show in specific departments. Here are the categories:
Best Animation in a video
Best Cinematography in a video
Best Choreography in a video
Best Colour Grade in a video
Best Editing in a video
Best Production Design in a video
Best Styling in a video
Best Visual Effects in a video
Each entered video must have been completed and delivered to the commissioning company between August 1st 2016 and July 31st 2017. More information about these categories, and a full rundown of all the categories to enter before the entry deadline of next Tuesday, August 8th at midnight (BST) - can be found at the UKMVA website.
Judging for this year’s UKMVAs will begin shortly after the entry deadline, and the first round of online judging will run through the rest of August. Invitations have been sent out to hundreds of members of the music video-making community in the UK and further afield, to become Jury Members in the first round. A second round of judging will follow in early September.
The UK Music Video Awards 2017 will take place for the second year running at the legendary Roundhouse in London on Thursday October 26th. Ticket information for the biggest night of the year for music video is coming soon.
