New York Festivals International Television & Film Awards 2011

The New York Festivals® International Television & Film Awards recognize “The World’s Best Work” in news, sports, documentary, information and entertainment programming as well as in music videos, infomercials, promotion spots, openings and ID’s.

Now entering its 54th year, the total number of entries continues to grow, now representing over 35 different countries, making the NYF® Television & Film Awards one of the most well known and widely respected competitions on the globe. In 2010, NYF® combined both the Television Programming Awards and the Film & Video Awards, thus creating one of the world’s largest international competitions dedicated to both the TV and film industries.

New categories mirror today’s trends in world-wide programming and encourage the next generation of story-tellers.

Objective

Submit TV program or film entries in the official categories.

Select the category that most closely relates to your submission’s type of program, primary purpose or target audience. You may enter the same production or program in multiple categories, including program categories and technique categories.

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 online jury of experts using an industry-accepted standard of excellence.

The categories for Television & Film are divided into two main groups:

  • Submissions which are distributed/transmitted: News Programs, News Reports/Features, Entertainment Programs, Entertainment Specials, Promotions, Station IDs, Opens, Documentaries, Music Videos, Online Programs, Student productions/webisodes and categories for arts/techniques.
  • Submissions which are exhibited/screened: Feature Films, Documentary Films, Short Films, Industrial Productions, Corporate Presentations, Business Theater, Event Venue Productions, Home Videos, Education/Information Productions, and categories for crafts/techniques.

Prizes

Grand, Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners will be announced at an awards ceremony held in New York in March 2011.

New York Festivals® winners may refer in advertising and publicity to the fact that they are a New York Festivals® winner and, for one year after the award was bestowed may use a replica of the New York Festivals® medal or the New York Festivals® logo in such advertising. A ® registration mark must accompany the use of the image.
