Aurora Awards Winners
The Aurora Awards presents the highest quality of reviews in the regional, independent, and internet classification of industry film awards – works not released to all five major networks or prime-time national presentation. It represents international, independent, and in-house filmmakers producing multi-media in marketing, corporate video, cable broadcasting, instructional and educational video and more. We award each motion media entry and its creators, as well as their clients who helped originate and facilitate the opportunity to win.
PLATINUM BEST OF SHOW
This is the highest award offered at The Aurora Awards. The films, videos and motion media winner' work has been judged national and has met high achievements overall as Aurora Awards Platinum Best of Show Winners for:
The filmmakers who earn our Platinum Best of Show are qualified and may be requested among many to judge our upcoming competitions offering credible feedback to entrants.
The films, videos and motion media winners’ work has been judged nationally and has met high achievements overall as Aurora Awards Gold Award Winners for:
The filmmakers who consistently earn our Gold Award are pre-qualified and may be selected among many to judge our upcoming competitions.
The Aurora Awards does not view “competition” the same as most, in that our entrants are not competing against each other to be titled as “Best of (category)”. That method only rates the highest performance level of those who enter the competition or festival.
At the Aurora Awards, filmmakers are competing against their own selves, national industry performance levels and Aurora’s Standard of Excellence. There are two time periods per year in which to enter with deadlines to meet. Judging is performed more often than annual industry awards, thus allowing a more frequent flow of judging feedback. A competition merely refers to the grouping and time segment in which we have to accept entries, judge and award winners -- and for each entrant to compete with their former self or team in a quest for a quality industry measurement.
How many creators make an award-winning piece and then stop creating that level of excellence? We encourage our Aurora Awards winners to be continuous award-winners so the title remains accurate to the day they make the claim and so clients of filmmakers may know they are currently capable of making quality work for their next assignment. Many of our Aurora Award winners repeat excellence time after time. Ask your filmmaker, “When was the last award that you won an Aurora?”. If they are an Aurora Award winner, chances are great that it was pretty recent.
