Is work from outside of the United States allowed?
Yes, the Broadcast Production Awards is an international competition open to entries from around the world. Some categories do have exclusions, such as with Set of the Year and Lighting Design. In these instances, an International-specific category is present.

Can a project be submitted into multiple categories?
Yes, there is no limit on the number of categories you can submit a project into. Please note, during the submission process, you will need to fill out an entry form for each category you wish to enter a project into.

How are entries judged?
Judging is conducted by a panel of industry professionals who make up a wide variety of disciplines in broadcast production, creative design and engineering. The panel rates each entry on a series of criteria based on the particular category.

Honorable mentions will be awarded for work scoring within 10% of the top finisher’s score in each category. In the event of a tie, multiple entries may be awarded a trophy.

Who receives the trophy for a winning project?

Winning entrants will receive one (1) NewscastStudio Broadcast Production Award trophy, with duplicates available for purchase by clients, design firms, authorized representatives or vendors.

Duplicate trophies may be awarded once the judging is complete at the current list rate. Because trophies are custom made to order, no refunds for duplicate trophies are issued.

When and where is the awards ceremony?

Unlike some awards programs, the Broadcast Production Awards is a completely digital competition, this keeps the entry fees low and means we can showcase the winners to a wider audience — instead of just folks in a ballroom.
