There are just over two days left until the entry deadline for the UK Music Video Awards 2020, on Friday, August 7th at midnight (BST). And among more than 35 categories, entries are being accepted to some of the most prestigious honours at the UKMVAs, for the Individual Awards. With one brand new honour added to the group, the awards are:

Best Director

Best New Director

Best Producer

Best Commissioner

Best Artist

Best Agent *NEW*

In each case the award is given for a body of work over the past year, from August 1st 2019 to July 31st 2020, and for each individual or group who are submitted for an Individual Award, weblinks must be entered with the submission.

In the case of Best Director and Best New Director links to a minimum of two videos must be included in the entry, a minimum of three videos for Best Producer and Best Artist, and a minimum of five videos for Best Commissioner and the new award, Best Agent.

Furthermore, for the first time there are now two Best Company awards. These recognise a body of work over the course of the last year by companies, over the same period as above. These awards are:

Best Production Company

Best Post Production Company *NEW*

In both cases, links to five of the works by the company must be entered with the submission. All US-originated entries in the UKMVAs will also be automatically entered into the MVPA Awards.

Find out more information about all the award categories on the categories page of the UKMVAs website. Then go to the enter now page of the website to enter a video in any of these categories, or in the Best Video, Special Projects, Live, Music Film, Lockdown and Technical Achievement categories.
