REQUIRED AND OPTIONAL MATERIALS

There are required and optional materials to be submitted to present the entries. Please refer to each group’s requirements for submission of materials.

  • Required materials will be shown for the judging, screened and/or exhibited during the Festival, screened at the award ceremony, should the entry be awarded, as well as published in the entries showcase on www.goldendrum.com.
  • Optional Awards show film, if submitted, will be screened at the award ceremony, should the entry be awarded. In case the entrant does not submit the awards show film, the organizer reserves the right to screen only the first 60 seconds of the original video at the award ceremony.
  • Other optional materials can be submitted to better present the entered work in a context and will only be shown for judging, if submitted. Upon request from an entrant, these optional materials may be published in the entries showcase on the Festival's website.

There should be no agency branding on any materials submitted.
