when are the details about and invitations for the ceremony going to be sent out??

and how are the awards judged / decided?

Invites to the ceremony were sent out to nominees a few weeks ago, via the contact specified when the film was submitted. if you are a nominee, but haven't heard from us, it's possible that the email invite bounced - a few did. We've tried to track everyone down, but you might have slipped through the net. In which case, drop us an email (to, including as much detail as you can about your film. Really, we need the reference code you would have received when submitting your film.

The winners are decided by our fantastic panel of judges. They've been gushing in their praise this year, and their marks in some of the categories are astonishingly close.
