Promonews - 31st July 2020

The entry deadline for over 35 categories at the UK Music Video Awards 2020 has been now extended, from the original date next Monday, August 3rd to next Friday, August 7th. 

So there is a week from today (July 31st) to enter the UK Music Video Awards 2020. All work must be uploaded to the judging platform by the final deadline at midnight (BST) next Friday. 

To enter a video to be considered for a music genre, technical achievement, live, or special video project award, go to the video entry page at the UKMVAs website, click on the category you wish to enter. Then you will be directed to fill in the online entry form, pay the entry fee (GB£75 + VAT per entry) and upload the video to the online judging platform, ready for the first round of judging of UKMVAs 2020.

If you wish to submit a person to one of the individual awards at the MVAs - for Best Director, Producer, New Director, Commissioner, Agent or Artist – for their body of work in music video for the past year, and also a company for the Best Production Company and Best Post Production Company awards, please go to the individual entry page at the UKMVAs 2020 website, and click the category you wish to enter. Again you will be directed towards the entry form, where you can add the name of the individuals, music act, or company you wish to submit for judging, adding links to their work, following payment.

There are now 20 Best Video categories to choose from, for music videos of all types and budgets made in the past year, completed and approved between August 1st 2019, to July 31st 2020. Each music genre – Alternative, Dance/Electronica, Hip-Hop/Rap/Grime, Pop, R&B/Soul and Rock, has its own UK, International and Newcomer award (the latter for a video made for under GB£8K, designed to recognise newcomer directing talent). 

In addition, there are categories for Best Live Video, and in light of unprecedented events this year, Best Lockdown Video. In addition, covering longer form work and more complex commissions, there are awards for Best Special Video Project, and also Best Music Film.

There are the customary eight technical achievement categories: Animation, Cinematography, Choreography, Colour Grading, Editing, Production Design, Styling, and VFX. A full list of awards and their rules of entry can also be found on the categories page at the UKMVAs website.

The extended deadline for entries to midnight (BST) on Friday, August 7th is the absolute final deadline for entries. Entries need to be registered, and the entered videos uploaded by that final deadline, in order to be added to the judging platform when judging begins a few days later. No new entries can be accepted after the final deadline has passed.

The first round of judging on this year's UKMVAs will commence in the second week of August, with Jury Members invited to view and select favourites from their allotted categories. Final judging will take place in early September and the nominations for this year's UK Music Video Awards announced in late September.

The UK Music Video Awards 2020 ceremony and aftershow party are still scheduled to take place at the legendary Roundhouse in London on October 29th 2020. More information about the event will follow in the coming weeks.
