FAQS
Do I need to include a marketing objective with each entry?

Yes — the marketing objective is helpful in many instances, especially when it comes to judging. Things to include: intended purpose, creative direction, promo results, and other essential information required for specific categories. This field cannot be left blank when saving an entry, nor can it be edited once an invoice has been generated for your entry.

How do we upload digital materials in the form of JPG, WEB, or PNG files?

You can submit this content as archived interactive material via video upload.

What entry content can be edited once an invoice is generated?

Once a dedicated entry invoice is created, the launch date and credits can still be altered. Videos and PDFs can also be replaced from the entry dashboard. Select “Modify” next to any entry to edit its content. No entry details can be edited after a competition’s final deadline.

What’s the difference between Credited Company, Company Credit, and Agency Credit?

Company Credit and Agency Credit are necessary to tabulate points for the Of the Year Awards. These fields are only applicable to the following TV/Streaming competitions: North America, Europe, and Global. The Credited Company section is mandatory for every entry across all competitions. The information inputted here will be displayed on potential finalist/winners lists and statues.

How are Of the Year Award finalists/winners determined?

Points are allotted for every win a company or agency receives. 3 points for Gold, 2 points for Silver, and 1 point per Bronze winning entry (Bronze not applicable for the Europe competition as only gold and silver are awarded). The total points are then calculated and compared amongst all entrants.

Why was a category I entered not included with other winners?

The Global Entertainment Marketing Academy of Arts & Sciences reserves the right to withdraw any category if determined that there is an insufficient number of entries in that category to make it competitive. In the event of withdrawal from a noncompetitive category for which payment has been made in full, participants will receive a credit applicable to the following year’s competition. Please note that no refunds will be provided.

Can I watch any video entries within a competition?

Only winning entries can be viewed within a given competition. These can be found on the winners guide or accessed via the Play Media function on our Order Duplicates/Winner’s Search page.

How can I apply or nominate a judge/juror?

Apply or nominate here.

Are complimentary statues provided after the awards show?

For winning entries, complimentary Gold and Silver statues will be sent to the address listed in the account of the submitting profile. Bronze winners do not receive complimentary statues, but they can be ordered via our duplicate statues order form. Please allow a few weeks after the conclusion of the awards show to receive the complimentary statues.

What is the maximum file size and preferred aspect ratio?

The maximum file size is 500MB per file and the preferred aspect ratio is 16:9. If the original content was formatted 4:3, please provide curtains (black bars on each side typically referred to as pillarboxing) to accommodate for 16:9 playback.

Yes, you can order from more than one category at a time. You can also order and customize up to 9 statues for one winning entry at a time.

If I order multiple duplicate statues, is there a single shipping cost?

The shipping cost is applied on an individual statue basis. This means each statue you order will have its own cost for shipping and handling. For anything shipped domestically (within the United States), the cost is $50 per statue; anything shipped internationally is $85 per statue.

Do I need to include a Tax ID number when ordering duplicate statues?

A Tax ID number is necessary when shipping statues to the United Kingdom, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, India, and Israel. It is also important to update your account’s mailing address to reflect this if you live/work in any of these countries.

Who can order a duplicate statue?

Your name must be included on the credits list of a winning entry in order to receive a duplicate statue. If you are not listed within the credits, the original entrant must contact us to allow purchase of a duplicate.

Where can I order a duplicate statue certificate?

We no longer offer certificates for purchase. If you need a confirmation letter, please contact awards@gema.org and indicate which winning entries you’d like listed. Please note, for any winning entry included within a letter of confirmation, you must be listed in the credits section.

How do I order duplicate statues prior to the 2009 competition year?

Our online database extends back to 2009. For help ordering/locating statues prior to this, please contact awards@gema.org for assistance.

Can I purchase a replacement plaque?
