Submissions Open November 2nd!
The awards season looks very different this year. Our 25th Annual Excellence in Production Design Awards are set for Saturday, April 10, 2021. We expect to hold a virtual event. More details will be provided in the near future.
Start thinking about your ADG Awards submissions now! Television and Feature Film forms will be available on November 2nd. See the bottom of this email or follow this link for the full ADG Awards timeline.
Website: This will be our third year using the new website at the ADG. All procedures are the same. I will send a separate eblast with the instructions later. These instructions will include how to access to the website, how to create your username and password and how to start a submission. If you set up a user/pass last year, it will still be active this year. There is a “forgot your password” function if needed.
Also, don’t forget you may upload your promotional content as soon as you complete the submission form. The uploads will be visible once submissions close.
As always, please do not wait until the last day to start your submission!
Items needed with your submission:
Television: Mail two DVD copies of your submitted projects to Awards Department c/o Art Directors Guild 11969 Ventura Blvd. 1st fl., Studio City, CA 91604
