Como, Italy (PRWEB) March 22, 2014
Today, A’ Design Award & Competition announced its call for nominations to annual juried International Movie Design Awards. Filmmakers, directors and producers worldwide are invited to enter their films for award consideration. Unlike other awards for cinema and motion pictures, the A’ International Movie Design Awards focuses more on the embedded design practices, principles and visual aesthetics of submissions. The awards ceremony has been instituted to honor both artistic and technical excellence in the film industry. Entries are open for theatrical trailers, internet videos, independent productions, short movies, documentaries, animations, commercials, reality shows, interactive video, entertainment programs, as well as feature films in all genres.
The A’ International Movie Design Awards will be given for the works (films, trailers, ads, animations, videos, tv-formats etc.) rather than the individuals who were involved in their production; there will not be award categories for best director, best actor, best actress or for individual performances. There will be five different distinctions: Platinum (Best Picture), Gold, Silver, Bronze and Iron awards will be given. The International Movie Design Awards are given without regard to commercial interests or box-office sales, but rather to highlight the films that successfully integrate design thinking during production, directing, filmmaking and cinematography.
Entries will not be voted by the public and participants will not be required to ask for votes. The International A’ Movie Design Awards will be voted by a grand jury panel of academics, professionals and journalists. Entries will be peer reviewed and anonymously voted on evaluation criteria such as simulation of experiences, communication of ideas, stories, perceptions, feelings and atmosphere, visual aesthetics, sound design, scene design, setting design, story design, character design as well as other relevant aspects such as poster design, film-editing, dialogs, special effects, choreography, cinematography, costume design and soundtrack design. The evaluation criteria will be different for different film and genre classifications. The decision of the jury shall be final. Movie designs that contribute the most to the enrichment and influence of film industry will be specially highlighted.
