The MVPA Awards - the US celebration of music video creativity and innovation - is back after a long hiatus, and the UKMVAs is powering its return!
This year, to qualify for the MVPA Awards, you have to enter the UK Music Video Awards - but you don't have to pay an extra fee. All eligible entries in the UKMVAs will be entered into the equivalent category at the MVPAs free of charge.
So, you have nothing to lose! Enter the UKMVAs and we'll do the rest.
Eligible entries are videos for a US artist, or videos made by a US director or US production company.
And just like the UKMVAs, all videos submitted for entry must have been completed and delivered to the commissioner or client between
1 August 2019 and 31 July 2020.
There is an entry fee of GB £75 (+ VAT where applicable) per single video, individual or company per category.
There is no limit to the number of videos you can enter, nor the number of categories you can enter them in, but we are not able to offer discounts for multiple entries.
How to enter
Enter Video categories
Enter Technical & Craft categories
Enter Individual & Company categories
Please note that you can only enter a video into one of the genre categories (Pop, R&B/Soul, Dance/Electronic, Rock, Alternative and Hip Hop/Rap).
Select Newcomer if the video was made for under US$10,000 (or equivalent) by an up-and-coming director.
For the Individual and Company awards, you will be asked to show multiple videos to demonstrate a body of work. All videos uploaded must have been completed during the qualifying period - 1 August 2019 to 31 July 2020.
For a full list of categories, their definitions and criteria, we've compiled a handy downloadable PDF.
