Rules & Regulations

A separate fee is applicable for each category selection when entering for Single categories. If you are submitting more than one entry, send only one payment for the total amount of all your entry fees. Currency must be in US dollars.

Refund Policy: Because entries will have been processed and entered into the system, no refunds will be granted.


To be eligible for the 2020 competition, entries must have been first produced, released, exhibited, screened, aired or shown online between January 1, 2019, and December 31, 2019.


Select the category that most closely relates to your submission's type of genre. There is an entry fee for each category you enter. Individual entries are evaluated for their intrinsic merits – without comparing them with others. Each entry is, in effect, in competition with itself, and is measured by our international award-winning jury of experts using an industry-accepted standard of excellence.

A musician may enter multiple achievements in a category if the achievements are for different programs.

The award committee reserves the right to increase the number of nominees in any category.

The award committee reserves the right to not have ANY nominees in a category if the work submitted does not reach our level of excellence.
See Categories listing for definitions and additional explanations.


Finalists will be announced Feb 1st and the winners will be announced at an awards ceremony held Los Angeles in March 2019. A laureate will be sent to winning contacts following the awards presentation.


When submitting your credits, be aware that if your entry is a winner the name of the category, and title of the entry will appear on the award which is given to each winning entry. We also include the year of the competition. Finalists, when notified, will be given the opportunity to update and correct credits. However, if no corrections are made, credits listed during the entry process will be considered the credits of record.
