New York (PRWEB) January 06, 2014
A new year, a new opportunity for independent films, TV shows, documentaries and music videos!
The American Online Film Awards was officially launched today, inviting films from all around the world to participate in two online showcases and vie for nominations at the Official Award Ceremony in New York in December 2014.
Successfully selected films will be showcased on a unique streaming platform for two weeks in May and in September, allowing the public and an expert industry panel to vote on their favourites for special Audience Awards as well as nominate them for Official Nominations for the Award Ceremony in December.
This is a new opportunity for works to get noticed, appreciated and applauded on the fastest growing consumer platform; the internet.
The organisers of the Awards are a group of industry professionals who have come together to encourage films to embrace the internet as both a platform for their work and a place for audiences to find and discover new films.
Details about the unique streaming platform will be released in the coming couple of months, as well as more details about the Awards Ceremony in New York, including its prestigious location.
To submit a film, you can head to the website: http://www.americanonlinefilmawards.org - as this is the first year of the awards, films from all years will be considered. So if you've made a film a few years ago and it's sat on a shelf collecting dust, brush it off, prepare your tuxedo and expect plenty of new people to discover your work!
