UKMVAs Call For Entries

The world needs more people celebrating music videos as an art form. It needs more people championing music video directors, and the rest of their crew all the way down the line. Basically, it needs more people doing what the UK Music Video Awards do.

Heading into their 9th year, the UKMVAs have positioned themselves as one of the most vocal champions of music video craft. Most folks expect a lot of flair, and very little acknowledgement of actual creators in their music video award ceremonies, but the UKMVAs have focused on video creativity, rather than artist popularity, allowing them to recognize the talent that goes into music videos. They’re not just showing love to UK creators either, but to all of the creative people behind the music video art form around the world.

Entries are open now through August 2nd, so if you’re a director, DP, producer, editor, animator, art director, or anyone else working in the music video industry, head over to ukmva.com to learn more and submit your work. The ceremony is October 20th in Camden, London at The Roundhouse.

Doug Klinger is the co-founder/content director of IMVDb and watches more music videos than anyone on earth. You can find him on twitter at @doug_klinger.
