  1. Entries are open to any organization in North America, South America, Africa, Asia and Australia. All films created by organizations in Europe must be entered into Brand Film Festival London: www.brandfilmfestival.co.uk.

  2. The film or series must have been aired between January 1, 2017 and January 22, 2018*.
    *A film cannot be entered into the 2018 Brand Film Festival if it was entered into the 2017 Brand Film Festival.

  3. When you are entering the specialty and craft and tech categories you will need to select the film length from the following:

    Mini form: 0 - 20 seconds
    Short form: 21 seconds - 10 minutes
    Long form: Over 10 minutes

  4. We encourage you to enter your film or series into a core category as well as the specialty and/or craft and tech categories. For films entered into additional categories there will be a discounted entry fee. Eg. If you submit a film or series into three categories, the fee would be: $430 + $300 + $300 = $1030.  If you are submitting a film or series into multiple categories, please upload the film/s each time.

  5. All entries must be submitted online at www.brandfilmfestival.com. You will need to upload the film and include a write-up of the film synopsis (300 words max), write-up of the context of the film within the larger campaign activity (200 words max).

  6. There is a section for you to submit confidential information that only the jurors will see (200 words max). Nothing written in this section of the form will be published.

  7. All entries must be submitted and paid for online. You may input your entry information and save as a “draft” to return at a later date to submit payment. All films must be submitted and paid for by the entry deadline; January 22, 2018. Credit cards accepted include Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. Entries not paid for prior to judging will not be considered.

  8. Please, no commercials. Though it resists easy definition, branded content typically focuses on a story rather than a brand, product or service. Jurors reserve the right to reject any entry they feel does not meet this definition.
