Every year Anime Weekend Atlanta and The Video Art Track host The Professional Awards. This event, like the well known Academy Awards for movies, seeks to have the editors who make the music videos we love decide awards for their peers. Participants create one or two wholly new, never distributed music videos, and earn the right to vote for a variety of awards.
We need your help. In the past the decision of what awards would be presented has waited until September, after all the entries have been submitted. This year we are trying something different and giving everyone the opportunity to propose awards. The resulting categories will be reviewed by past participants of The Professional Awards who will decide what categories to promote in January.
Categories should have a short title and must have a short paragraph describing the criteria by which the category will be awarded. This doesn't have to be long or technical. Generally a few sentences is enough.
This is your opportunity to suggest creative an innovative new awards, to give the editors a challenge by focusing critique on a particular aspect of video editing perhaps, or encourage submissions for an under-represented genre or style.
