For the second year, Cablefax’s Trailer Awards will recognize the most effective and buzz-worthy trailers promoting shows and series running around the world on cable, broadcast, mobile, the web and beyond. The entry deadline is August 14, 2015, and finalists will be notified in fall 2015.
“We started the Trailer Awards last year to recognize the true power behind the TV promotional throne: The trailers that make us all want to watch,” said Cablefax Associate Publisher Michael Grebb. “We were overwhelmed with the quality of entries, and we expect even more greatness this time around as the TV world continues to expand beyond linear and into a robust multiscreen universe. With so much content now available to consumers, it has never been more important to create highly effective trailers that stand out from the crowd. And this industry has the talent to make it happen.”
The Trailer Awards are open to all individuals and teams worldwide. This program covers both creative categories as well as nuts-and-bolts marketing metrics related to tune-in, engagement and overall reach, allowing all the departments that contribute to well-packaged trailers to receive worthy recognition for this vital yet often overlooked marketing tool.
