The entry deadline for over 30 categories at the UK Music Video Awards 2016 has been extended from tomorrow, Tuesday, August 5th, to this Friday, August 5th.

To enter a video to be considered for a music genre, technical achievement, or interactive award, go to the enter now page at the UKMVAs 2016 website, fill in the online entry form, pay the entry fee and upload the video to the online judging platform, ready for the first round of judging for this year’s MVAs.
