Judging

We have jury heads for different categories, or groups of categories, and they and their fellow jury members will decide both the shortlisted work and, after a period of online deliberation, the eventual winners.

Further to this, points will be allocated to shortlisted and winning work, and the respective companies involved in making that work, to ascertain the winners of the company and people categories [listed below], with the company/person gaining the greatest number of points announced as the winner.  
Only companies based in the region will be in contention.

The points allocation is as follows:

  • Shortlisted work: 1 point
  • Bronze winning work: 3 points
  • Silver winning work: 5 points
  • Gold winning work: 8 points

The categories for which the above points system is employed:

  • Director of the Year
  • VFX Company of the Year
  • Agency of the Year
  • Editing House
  • Editor of the Year
  • Production Company of the Year
  • Audio Company of the Year


 

Notes for Judges

At shots we recognise the rich diversity of cultures across the region that shape the craft of each individual work. We also recognise that not all our jurors will have the necessary cultural insight to grasp these nuances in their full depth and variety.

For this reason, we encourage you to make use of the ‘Notes for Judges’ section in the entry form. Here, you can explain your work in relation to its native market and audience; what makes this particular piece stand out within the context of the region, and why?  Please do not include any credits in this section
