We have updated the Call for Entries this year and there may be some corrections/updates/questions that we want to make sure everyone is aware of.  Please check back here before submitting your final entries.

Director’s Cuts

Director’s cuts or variations of edits that were not client approved and did not air are not eligible.

21H Animation – 2D/3D

  • Entry must include supporting information, to give Judges a clear understanding of visual effects created in the production process; and
  • A two (2) minute film showing before and after sequences, compliant with Schedule 1, point 9 specifications.  You do not need to submit before and after sequences for animation.

What is the maximum video upload size?

We have clarified the requirements in the CFE

  • H.264 compressed;
  • High definition, eg 1920 x 1080 pixels;
  • Native aspect ratio without black bars, eg 16:9;
  • 8mbs maximium bitrate;
  • 400mb max file size;
  • Audio must be stereo, at its full quality; and
  • No clapper or countdown.

Variable or lower bitrates can be used. A 60sec TVC will be around 60mb and a 5 min video around 300mb. For longer content a lower bitrate can be used if necessary,
