The subject-specific categories for business- or work-related video and film productions will be the same for the 2011 ABAs as they were in 2010, but we've eliminated the function and craft categories for video and film (the categories for direction, editing, and the like).
Here are the categories in which you can enter your productions that were introduced since January 1 2010 (the letter/number combinations are our internal category codes):
H01. Internal/Employee Communications
H02. Magazine Format
H03. Meeting Modules
H06. P.R.: Annual Reports
H07. P.R.: Government
H08. P.R.: Industrial
H09. P.R.: Media & Entertainment
H10. P.R.: Non-profit Fund Raising
H11. P.R.: Other
H12. P.R.: Technology
H13. Sales: Direct Response Marketing
H14. Sales: Government
H15. Sales: Industrial
H16. Sales: Media & Entertainment
H17. Sales: Other
H18. Sales: Technology
H19. Sales: Product Sales
H20. Sales: Service Sales
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.
