There’s one week left from today (July 27th) to enter the UK Music Video Awards 2020 – the deadline is next Monday, August 3rd at midnight (BST).

Entries are being made to over 35 categories this year, as the UKMVAs covers the best work in British and international music videos by music genre, technical expertise, and individual and company achievement. 

The music genre categories - now reorganised and expanded to six genres - Best Pop, Dance/Electronic, R&B/Soul, Rock, Best Hip Hop/Rap/Grime, and Alternative – which include sub-categories for UK, international and Newcomer videos (the latter made for under GB£8K) – have seen entries pouring in from home and abroad. But there’s still time to get your videos in front of the judges.

In the Technical categories, there is the customary range of awards to celebrate the art and craft of music video production – Animation, Choreography, Cinematography, Colour Grading, Editing, Production Design, Styling (including wardrobe, hair and makeup styling) and Visual Effects.

The Individual categories for individual achievement throughout the eligibility period, for Best Director, Best New Director, Best Producer, Best Commissioner, Best Music Artist and the brand new award, Best Agent. In addition, there is the award for Best Production Company, and for the first time, Best Post Production Company. All these awards are judged according to the entrant's body of work over the past year. 

Additional categories include Best Live Video and Best Special Video Project; also for the first time this year, Best Music Film. In addition, due to the exceptional circumtances of the past few months, there is a one-off award for Best Lockdown Video. 

Full definitions of all the categories are available at the UKMVAs website. Submission of entries is also made at the entry page of the UK Music Video Awards website. The cost per entry is £75+VAT.

After the entry deadline, the first round of judging for the UK Music Video Awards 2020 will begin in the second week of August. After judging panels meet to discuss the shortlists in the second round, the nominations will be announced on September 29th.
