Competing in Audience Awards
Audience Awards is an innovative site for filmmakers and film fans. Through our video contest platform, a global audience gets to discover & engage with your film. This gives you an opportunity to discover a new audience for your film career,make money creating new films for brands and submitting the films you already have to different film contests.
Audience Awards gives the power to the audience to determine their favorite films and you are an important part of that audience. Unlike grant writing or a festival jury, you have the power to help determine the outcome of video contests. We often host contests that call for a certain type of film that you can create to win.

This can help you gain more exposure for your filmmaking career. Many times, filmmakers add clips, trailers and excerpts to continue to build support throughout the 10-day video contest.
