Why Enter?

Videographer Awards

All Excellence, Distinction and Honorable Mention winners will receive a certificate at no cost. Excellence and Distinction winners are eligible to purchase the jade acrylic clapboard award to commemorate their achievement.

The Videographer Awards keeps its entry fees low by not making all entrants subsidize awards won by others. Consequently, Excellence and Distinction Award winners will be charged $150 if they wish to have a personalized handcrafted 8×8 inch acrylic clapboard award. Each award is custom lasered with the winner’s name and entry title. Extra certificates and awards are available at an additional cost.

Videographer Awards

The Videographer Awards recognizes that entrants want to know the results quickly. Every effort will be made to notify all entrants by mail as soon as possible, usually within 45 days after the deadline.

Award of Excellence and Distinction winners will be listed on our web site, here. Included with the notification is information that winners can use in their marketing materials and web sites, and in preparing releases for their local news media, clients and prospects.
Entries are judged at random. Your work is judged on creativity and what you apparently had to work with, not against other entrants in the category. A 2-color and a 4-color brochure in the same category are not compared to each other. A small company is not compared to a Fortune 500 entrant in the same category. There can be multiple winners in a given category. All categories are $75 per entry.
