RRadar, an online music video commissioning service, have set up an awards event – to find and recognise the best emerging directors bubbling up worldwide, and to celebrate the emerging artists who commission them.
As many of you know from a recent WeSpin Recipes episode with the company’s founder Caroline Bottomley, Radar Music Videos connects artists, managers and record labels with music video creators from all around the world.
Best new directors
Radar flies the flag for great videos from brand new talent, rewarding the best and helping talented new directors move up and sign to commercial production companies. The Awards help to further grease those wheels for great new directors.
Best creative artists
The Radar Awards also celebrate the music acts who recognise that great directors need great artists to commission them.
Directors’ prizes range from internships with the best production companies in the world (like Partizan, Pulse Films and Somesuch), to valuable training packages and other festival entries (notably, the UK Music Video Awards).
Artists’ and bands’ prizes will include guaranteed features with influential music blogs and specialist intern support to help create and execute marketing campaigns.
The awards will be held on July 14th 2016 at the innovative YouTube Spaces in London.
Find out the entry deadlines, costs, and other details at this location. You can submit your videos for the awards here – there you can also check your eligibility as an emerging director or emerging artist or band.
