Video Uploads 

All videos must first be uploaded to the internet via Vimeo or our Dropbox account.

We need to be able to copy the video into our Vimeo account; linking will not be accepted.

Please find and use the Production Number and project title for your entry in the below list. i.e. 110 – “Your Title”. Please be sure to reference this Production Number and project number in your video email subject line.   This is important because it keeps all the videos and categories in the correct order on the ballot. The number before your entry is the official Ballot ID for that category/award.

If you have been nominated for multiple awards but only have one video please make a copy of the video with the correct Ballot ID number and – “Title” from the below list of entries that has been nominated. Please use the correct names and ID Numbers.

  • We use Vimeo https://vimeo.com and upload videos at HD resolution when possible. If you upload to your Vimeo account make sure to set “sharing” as “private” and invite videos@ialocal706.org to have permission to download. Note: In your privacy settings “What can people do with this video?” Check “Download it.” This is very important.
  • We also have a Dropbox service where you can upload your videos. Please request the link from videos@ialocal706.org and we will send you the “upload” link. Videos uploaded this way go directly into Vimeo.
  • It is the responsibility of the nominee to correctly identify the video submission.
  • Emails without correct identification (Ballot ID and Production Title) create confusion and may be returned for clarification.
  • Please provide your video promptly.  We need time to upload your video on the website in time for final voting, and all video’s must be vetted for correct formatting.

If it is discovered that submission information is incomplete, we will attempt to return it to you for correct completion. However, Local 706 assumes no responsibility for incorrectly submitted videos becoming eliminated due to delays.

Make no reference to the individuals-names, facilities or production companies associated with the work for submission.   Do not put your names on the video, ONLY THE SHOW NAME AND CATEGORY!!. Do not add music or any additional sound!!

Do NOT superimpose logos, lower thirds or bugs on the work to be judged.

The piece should appear exactly as aired.

Video reels must be submitted NO LATER THAN MARCH 3, 2021 AT THE LATEST!!!

Thank you, 2021 MUAHS Guild Awards Committee
