CINDY Awards: International Entry Deadline

Nearly 58 years ago, OSCAR was being presented for the finest in feature films.  The EMMY Award continued to honor broadcasting program excellence.  The CINDY Award was presented for the first time to those producing informational content in 16mm film format.

When the Cinema in Industry (CINDY) Awards premiered in 1959, things were pretty straight forward.  But today, there are multiple delivery platforms and even more subject matter categories and applications for informational programming.  From webinars, infomercials and video games to online interactive training, commercials and phone apps, you can still find an appropriate spot at the CINDY Awards where your digital media production efforts fit right in.

If you craft words, images, sound effects and music into digital content that captures audience attention and delivers the desired outcome, there is room for your work at the CINDY Awards.  For information: on why you should participate this year and discover who has received the award in the past, click: www.cindys.com

ENTRY DEADLINE:  SEPTEMBER 30
