East Lansing, MI (PRWEB) February 10, 2006
The Video Business Advisor has announced the release of its “Insider’s Guide to Video Awards: What They Are, What They’re Good For; How to Enter Competitions and Win.” Useful to beginners or long-timers in the industry, this eBook provides a comprehensive resource for finding, entering, and winning award competitions that best suit a videomaker’s objectives and type of work.
Award-winning producer and author, Steve Yankee states, “There are some awards that are worth winning. There are others that are merely the product of award mills - pay your entry fee, mail in your DVD and get an award for just showing up. Not everyone has the same goals when it comes to awards and recognition. You may be a seasoned videographer who has always craved a Golden Eagle or an Addy Best of Show, and any other award would simply be not good enough. On the other hand, you may be a relative newcomer to the video business industry who’d just like a trophy or two to display in your editing suite, simply to help boost your credibility with your clients and prospects.”
With the “Insider’s Guide” Yankee provides videographers “at-their-fingertips” access to details to the top video awards competition, including how many and what categories each competition has, how award winners are determined, and even the cost associated with getting an award statuette. Web links and contact information is provided for each award organization.
Not every award carries the same clout in the video industry. But, when it comes to marketing, winning any award is an asset. Many of the organizations mentioned in the “Insider’s Guide” provide tools to create news releases, clip space on their website for winners, and other communication tools that help to publicize a win. Yankee explains how best to utilize these resources. From ADVA to the Videographer Awards, he has done the research so that video makers can focus on what they do best and receive the recognition they deserve.
