There’s just over four days left from today (August 3rd) to enter work into the UK Music Video Awards 2018 – 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 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 2017 and July 31st 2018.
Find out more information about all the award categories on the categories page of the UKMVAs website. Then go to the enter now page of the website to enter a video in any of these categories, or in the Best Video, Interactive, Live, Individual and Company categories. The cost is £75 + VAT per video per category, and the final entry deadline to enter work is next Tuesday, August 7th at midnight BST.
The first round of judging for this year’s MVAs begins approximately a week after the entry deadline – invitations to Jury Members to participate in the online judging round on the MVA judging platform have been sent out in the past few days. A second round of judging will follow in early September.
