We officially start accepting your videos for 2016 from the 1st September. This year we guarantee better prizes for the category winners and the final winner will receive not 1, not 2, but €3000 in cash!


What’s more… this year 3 nominees will get a golden pass to the finals!! Yes, yes, you heard it right… That means that even if a video is not a category winner, you might find it in the finals running for the big prize. Why? Because every year we feel that some videos are awesome, even if they don’t get to be the best of their category.


As always, it’s better to send us your videos early since we like to give them the maximum attention and time.
Stay tuned on our social media! We have much more news to come…


Before we embark on another delicious music video roller coaster, we would like to remind you how the entire event looked like:
