UK Music Video Awards 2016 open for entries

The UK Music Video Awards 2016 opens for entries today in its ninth year, accepting submissions from music video makers across the globe, and offering them a unique opportunity to gain recognition for their creative work.

Entries are now open for more than 30 different categories, celebrating various music genres and roles within the music video making process – including direction, production, camerawork, animation and post-production.

This year there is a fresh focus on seeking new talent, with five awards aimed at newcomers. We also see awards available for international artists. Entries can be made via the MVA website (www.ukmva.com) with the deadline set for August 2. This year the Awards will take place on Thursday 20th October, and return to legendary London venue The Roundhouse.

Speaking of this year’s awards, UK Music Video Awards editorial director David Knight said: “With music videos playing such a huge role in how music reaches people now, the UKMVAs provides an important platform for recognising the incredible range of talent involved in making them. Music video has always been a playground for up and coming filmmakers, and creative space for visual ideas. It can incorporate all kinds of filmmaking, and it can also have its very own film language. In music videos, as in music, anything goes. It just has to work. The UKMVAs is here to celebrate the work that does exactly that.”
