Best of Show // Award of Excellence // Award Of Merit
After each seasonal deadline, quality and creativity are celebrated in three levels of awards: Best of Show, Award of Excellence and Award of Merit. Best of Show honors are granted only if worthy productions are discovered. Likewise, no more than 15% of entries are granted Awards of Excellence. Notable artistic and technical productions are recognized at the Award of Merit award level. Judging results letters will be sent by regular mail about four to six weeks after the final deadline to all participants, i.e., to those who were granted awards and those who were not granted awards. Free digital downloads of Accolade laurels will be made available to all winners. Winners may also order an Accolade statuette for an additional cost of $350 per statuette. Shipping is free within the United States but international orders will be charged a $50 shipping fee. The Accolade statuette is a constellation of 24K gold-plated stars mounted on a piano finished base of rosewood. It has been called the most beautiful award in the industry. The Accolade is manufactured by the company that makes the world’s most prestigious and celebrated awards, the Oscar, Emmy, Clio and MTV Video Music Awards. The Accolade is truly a work of art.
