You can enter your productions through the ABA's easy-to-use online submission system, or offline - depends on whether or not your production is available online. 

All of the video awards categories require that you submit a brief of up to 100 words about the objectives and results of your work, plus the word itself, and optionally you can provide creative and production credits for the work.

Any questions about these categories, let us know.
