The Accolade is a nontraditional, virtual venue with seasonal deadlines that allows timely online publicity and distribution opportunities for moviemakers, television producers and videographers. It is a top tier, international awards competition in its fifth year. The Accolade receives entries from all over the world including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, England, Spain, Ireland, India, Czech Republic, Malaysia, Hong Kong, etc. Subtitled, foreign-language films are welcome. The awards go to those moviemakers, television producers and videographers who produce fresh, standout entertainment, animation and compelling documentaries.
Since The Accolade is not a traditional festival, it gains eyeballs for winners online through its website, press releases and blasts to its e-mail database of more than 25,000 producers, distributors and buyers. The Accolade is an award known to buyers and distributors and gives them confidence that winning productions are of high quality.
There are three levels of awards, all based on quality and creativity: Best of Show, Awards of Excellence and Honorable Mention. No more than 15% of entries are granted Awards of Excellence. Best of Show honors are granted only if worthy productions are discovered. Notable artistic and technical productions are recognized at the Honorable Mention award level. Annually, a special award is given to a production that makes a significant contribution to social change or a humanitarian effort.
Winners benefit as The Accolade team works passionately to help worthy productions gain the publicity and distribution they deserve. Clips of the Best of Show productions are streamed on The Accolade Website. All Award of Excellence and Honorable Mention winners have a listing with a link to their Website if requested. Every moviemaker, television producer and videographer wants credibility and buzz, and that is what The Accolade is all about! It is a showcase for cinematic gems and unique voices.
The goal of The Accolade is to help the winners of this coveted award achieve the recognition and distribution they deserve.
