Dan Bragg and Mark Valentine return for another round of Hot Spots, the annual PromaxBDA Conference session featuring many of the most creative and inspiring spots of the year.
What to Submit
Any spot produced between June 2016 and May 2017. 90 seconds or less. This session is NOT part of the awards competition – PromaxBDA award entries are accepted. No fee is required.
How Many to Submit
You may submit up to 5 of your favorite spots, please no more.
No commercials for consumer products/services unless they’re co-branded with media brands.
No marketing reels, title sequences, graphic packages or design montages. Spots only!
We receive over 1200 submissions every year. All entries are reviewed, but due to time constraints, only 50 to 60 spots will appear in the final session. Spots will be grouped into categories. Categories change from year to year based on the submissions. Categories from past sessions include Brand Image, ID’s, Show Launches, Holiday, Special Events, News, Sports, Movies, Visual Effects, Ad Sales Stunts, Co-Branded, Interstitials, Comedy, Great Concepts, Writing, Sound Design, Music, Editing, Design and Live-Action.
How To Submit
Please submit each spot as its own Quicktime file. Please include one text document that contains a list of all the spots you are submitting along with contact information (name, phone, email).
All entries should be exported from first frame of spot to last frame of spot. No bars, slates or black. No vendor bugs. Spots should be submitted as they originally aired. If the spot is not natively in the English language, please provide a version with English subtitles.
Spots may be uploaded to promaxbda.rushtera.com. or the cloud service of your choice. Please send us the download information if you are using your own server.
