How to enter

Quick Guide

STEP 1: Read the Rules

PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES. PROPERLY. PREFERABLY MORE THAN ONCE.

Absolutely nothing can be entered that has not been approved and that has not been commercially published, launched or aired.

STEP 2: Check the Categories & Fees

Make sure you enter your work in the correct categories and check the entry fees. The APA Awards will endeavour to move entries to more appropriate categories during entry processing and prior to judging.

However it remains your responsibility. During judging the Jury are not allowed to move entries between categories.

STEP 3: Entry Preparation

Each category has different information that needs to be captured, including supporting media and documents, and an required online entry site.

Please check the entry form and rules to ensure you’re ready to upload your entry.

STEP 4: Submit your entry online

  1. Create a new entry. Click on Submit Entry and choose New Entry. Then choose the category that you would like to enter your work into.
  2. Enter the details of your entry, including a description and credits. IMPORTANT: you can save your incomplete Entry Form at any point and return at a later stage.
  3. You will have the option to upload and add media to your entries during this process (video files, audio files, jpegs). You can also add media at a later stage.
  4. Before payment you have the opportunity to review your entries . You can also Edit, Delete or Add entries at this point. 
  5. Once you have created and checked your entries, you can proceed to payment. Payments can only be made by Bank Transfer.
