The first-ever World Trailer Awards is open for entries!
London, U.K. and Los Angeles, CA (August 24, 2021) — Announcing the Call for Entry for the inaugural World Trailer Awards (WTA), honouring the world’s best creatives who are marketing the world’s best entertainment. WTAs celebrate outstanding entertainment marketing across Cinema, TV (Broadcast & Cable), Gaming, Podcast & Radio, Streaming Services and Social Media. The awards are open for entry at worldtrailerawards.net through October 31, 2021.
Serving as a new standard of excellence for the world’s entertainment marketing industry, the WTAs shine a spotlight on trailers and creative marketing concepts that bring entertainment products to life, delivering audiences and driving revenues for the global entertainment industry.
“We’re thrilled to applaud the vitality and energy of these passionate creators; true artists of their craft who largely go unrecognised in credits but are pivotal in attracting and delivering audiences. Turning the spotlight on these global creators is incredibly important to instil a deeper appreciation for their work, enable cross-sector collaborations and open the window for future marketing initiatives and concepts to move the industry forward,” said Evelyn Watters, Executive Director, World Trailer Awards.
The WTA judging panel brings together the world’s most influential voices across the full global entertainment arena, who will select the best submissions in 30+ categories, including Best Trailer, Best Audio Trailer, Best Poster, Best Motion Poster, Best Story, Best Experiential Marketing, Best Online Advertising, Best Outdoor Advertising, and Best Print Advertising for entries from Cinema, TV (Broadcast/Cable), Gaming, Podcast & Radio, Streaming Services and Social Media. Winners in all categories will be selected for recognition in delivering innovation and creativity, with a focus on creating an exceptional level of engagement.
Winners from the seven regions (Africa, Asia, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, Middle East & North Africa and North America) will be selected by the judges in December 2021. Regional winners will advance to the world finals, with the World Trailer Awards winners announced and celebrated in February 2022 in awards ceremonies live from the Loule Theatre in the Algarve (Portugal).
The WTA is a global initiative from the revered Golden Trailer Awards, an awards competition that recently marked its 21st year celebrating the entertainment industry’s best movie trailers, teasers, posters, and innovative advertising; in association with AcclaimWorks, a globally recognised leader in awards management services.
