CATEGORY RULES
Links to your work are accepted for this competition. Please include in cover letter or email the link to info@nextventertainment.com (include reference # in the email). Note: we also accept online screeners, hard copy submissions and emailed Files.

For awards and prizes, SUBMISSIONS will be broken up as a TV Network or Studio might categorize content...into one of the following 6 categories:

1. COMEDY - WEB SERIES, SHORTS, PILOTS, TEASERS (etc…)
2. DRAMA* - WEB SERIES, SHORTS, PILOTS, TEASERS (etc…)

3. COMEDY - FEATURE FILMS

5. ANIMATION
6. UNSCRIPTED (Docs, Reality, Talk Show, etc...)

“Drama” is a broad category covering everything that is NOT comedy.

These categories will transcend the format (so, for example, a comedic web series, could be in the same category as a comedic short, pilot, trailer, etc..)

FINALISTS
Finalists will be selected for overall quality of work, in addition to the project’s potential for becoming viable television content.
