The UK Music Video Awards 09, which celebrate the best work in promos over the last 12 months, are open for entries.

 

The awards launched last year, when directors including Nima Nourizadeh, Kinga Burza and Eran Creevy all picked up gongs for their work. As with last year, there will be a gala ceremony taking place in London where the winners will be announced – this year taking place at the Odeon West End in Leicester Square on October 13.

 

The deadline for entering the awards is August 13. Several new categories have been added to the awards this year, including best animation, best live music coverage, and best music ad (TV/online). There is also an ‘innovation award’, which recognises the ways in which music videos are changing with the rise of interactive technology. All info on entering the awards or attending the ceremony is at ukmva.com.
