The Shiny Awards have announced the last call for submissions to the New Signings Awards - a new bi-monthly awards show exclusively for newly signed directors.

The New Signings Awards are open to any genre of film under a five minute runtime - including music videos - by directors who have been signed to reps and production companies within the last 12 months. The deadline for submissions is end of day, tomorrow, Wednesday 20th January.

Judges for the inaugural New Signings Shiny Awards are all Wieden + Kennedy staffers: Hollie Walker, Creative Director London office, Nick Setounski, Head of Integrated Production, New York office, and Joe Togneri, Head of Integrated Production Amsterdam office. They’ll be live judging the awards next Weds (Jan 27th) and selecting three winners.

The New Signings Awards is part of a new format for Shiny for 2021, running awards shows at the end of every month, alternating between freelance and newly signed directors. Submission judges are from leading companies in the commercial production industry, and award judges are always agency or brand creatives and commissioners.

"We saw an opportunity to get more new directors in front of ECDs, Creative Directors and key decision makers at world class ad agencies,” says Caroline Bottomley, Shiny’s MD.  “Regular, bi-monthly awards are great way to maintain your talent profile in adland throughout the year.”
