Accolade Film Competition is an officially recognized competition through IMDb – the world’s largest and most prestigious internet database.

GENERATE PRESS – IT REALLY HELPS BOOST CREDIBILITY & STATUS

If your film wins an award – you can use that award to generate press. Getting articles about you / your film / your cast & crew – goes a long way to boosting the status of your film and your career as a filmmaker. Accolade helps winners by providing them with a “fill-in-the-blanks” Press Release and a long list of tips to get your story published. We have done all the heavy lifting in creating it – you just need to get it out there! When your website is full of links to articles written about you – you can be SURE that will provide a boost to your film and career!

NO DATE RESTRICTIONS

If you have a project that you have created ANY TIME – you can enter it now for an opportunity to receive additional accolades – perhaps in different categories (for example to help boost the profiles of your cast and crew, add your score, women filmmakers, African-American, etc.)

WINNERS LAURELS = INSTANT CREDIBILITY

Enough said…

PRESTIGIOUS COMPETITION
