The Music Video category is returning to the D&AD Awards next year, with Damian Kulash from OK Go heading the jury that will decide the winners of awards in five Music Video subcategories for the 2014 D&ADs.

The five Music Video subcategories are: 

Music Videos
Animation for Music Videos
Cinematography for Music Videos
Editing for Music Videos
Special Effects for Music Videos

Entry is now open for these and other categories at next year's D&ADs, with entry in each subcategory costing £80/€130/$150. The entry deadline is 29 January 2014. You can find out more about criteria for the awards here

The reintroduction of the range of Music Video awards at the 2014 D&AD follows a concerted campaign by members of the UK music video community when D&AD dropped Music Video from their range of award categories in 2013. Liz Kessler, head of music video at Academy Films/A+ (and winner of best producer at the UK Music Video Awards 2013) was one of those who lobbied for the return of the category, and her account of the campaign is now on the D&AD website
