Welcome to the 2018 TIVA-DC Peer Awards!

Whether a member of TIVA-DC, or a non-member, we welcome you to participate.  Enter your work, upload your videos, and make your payment all from this one site.

If you haven’t entered the Peer Awards in the past, here’s the quick tour:

Start by clicking on the Rules/Fees/Release button. Not only will you find these topics here, but the entry categories as well. Categories are divided by Production and Skills so that both production companies and freelancers can have their work judged equally and fairly.

Further topics under this banner include the schedules for the fees, how your video will be judged, and the acceptable entry formats (and if you’ve never uploaded a video before, that’s OK. We’ll walk you through it.)

The Help & FAQs and Contact Us buttons are, we hope, self explanatory.

That only leaves the Register button. You must register even if you've submitted to the Peer Awards in years past.  When you’re ready to check out the site, or better yet, enter your work, click Register, enter your email address and contact information, create a username and password, and you’re in. And if you forget your password later, we have you covered there too with a Retrieve User ID/Reset Password option when you click the Login button.

The TIVA-DC Peer Awards is a merit-based award judged solely on the individual merits of the entry. This is not a competition, rather an acknowledgement and celebration of exceptional quality work created by the DC/MD/VA region. This may result in categories receiving multiple awards as well as categories not receiving any awards.

The Peer Awards ceremony is scheduled for November 17, 2018 at the National Press Club.  All Gold Award recipients will receive a TIVA DC Peer Award trophy the night of the ceremony. Silver and Bronze recipients will receive an embossed certificate suitable for framing. Additional Gold trophies as well as Silver and Bronze trophies and certificates may be ordered for a nominal fee after the ceremony.  A special discount period will be offered for trophy/certificate orders immediately following the ceremony.

We thank you for your entries and wish you the best in this year’s Peer Awards.
