The Chairs of the Awards Balloting Committee have sought to improve the voting process into a clearer and simpler one for the voting membership. Submission guidelines, submitting parties, and categories have been refined to create clarity and consistency for each category, which will now include expanded shorter formatted projects beyond commercials alone. We hope these improvements assist you in your participation as a voting member.
With the hundreds of film releases, television shows, and countless fashion events each year, we cannot stress enough the importance of self-participation by submitting your projects on the Submission Form.
