After impressive growth in the number of entries - 15% more than for last year's event - judging for the 2009 UK Music Video Awards will begin later this week.

An electoral college of over 200 Jury Members - invited from across the UK music video industry and beyond - will participate in the first round of judging, when all entries to 17 award categories are available to be viewed on the UK MVA judging platform from this coming Thursday, 27th August.

Any videos which have not yet been uploaded on to the site, need to be finalised by end of day today to ensure that they are in place for the start of the judging process.

Jury Members will be asked to select their six favourite works in the category or categories they are judging, and the most popular selections will go on to the second stage of judging next month, when panels of industry professionals will meet to debate and pick each MVA winner.

Jury Members' invitations will be emailed this week, including all the details about how to access the judging platform. But there is also still time to apply to become a Jury Member - contact Louise Stevens at louise@ukmva.com for details.
