All entered work must have been completed and delivered to its commissioner between August 1st 2014 and July 31st 2015 – so work completed and approved in the next few days up to and including July 31st will be eligible for this year’s MVAs, but not after that date.

Full definitions of all the categories are available at ukmva.com/categories, and terms and conditions for the awards are here. Submission of entries - either for a video entry, or an individual - is also made via the UK Music Video Awards website, here

The cost of each entry is £65+VAT - the same as in the last two years. If you’re in any doubt about the eligibility of your entry, or have any other queries, please contact the MVAs team on info@ukmva.com.

After the entry deadline, the first round of judging for the UK Music Video Awards 2015 will take place in August, with invited MVA Jury Members judging all the entries via the MVAs online voting platform in the first round of judging. A second round of judging will follow in September, with the nominations for this year's UKMVAs will be announced in early October.

The ceremony itself and the afterparty of the UK Music Video Awards 2015 takes place for the first time at the legendary Roundhouse in London on Thursday, November 5th.
