The first of 3 Deadlines for submissions this year is just around the corner.
You can find more info about the deadlines on our website:



Why should you send your entry earlier?

1. We will have more time to watch your video – when it gets closer to the final deadline we receive a large quantity of submissions in a short space of time.

2. Unlike other festivals, we are already starting to nominate videos (10 videos every few weeks). Videos that aren’t selected now will be considered for the next rounds (130 nomination empty places). Videos that are submitted around the final deadline have a lower chance of being nominated (by then 30-40 nomination empty places).

3. Earlier submissions are cheaper!

4. If you’re aware of your nomination earlier, you have more time to prepare for visiting the event (booking cheap flights and so on..)
