Music video closes for entries on 31st December with plans for a dedicated festival in everyones favourite seaside town of Brighton in the spring (needless to say subject to change) with panels, talks, screenings and award presentations.
Category changes this year include Best Music Video now awarded as a Grand Prix which will be honoured with the prestigious White Shark trophy. Music Video Production Company of the Year and Music Video Post Production Company of the Year have also been added.
Music video was introduced to the Shark Awards in 2016 with the firm belief that music video has the power to be a significant form of creative expression and launched the careers of some of the industry’s most talented filmmakers.
For the Shark Awards jury, the brightest and best creators and commissioners will award for best music video, direction, writing, choreography, cinematography, grading, editing and design.
