JUDGING

The PMA Awards Committee has assembled a jury of top decision makers in the community of production music users, including music supervisors, creative directors, promo executives, trailer supervisors, etc. Jury members and PMA Awards Committee members, if applicable, are prohibited from influencing or voting on their own work. The Awards Committee may in its discretion limit or eliminate recognition of any category in which entries are not consistent with the standards of quality that The Mark Awards require. Up to three (3) top choices in each category will be included in The Mark Awards. Individual juries will be assembled for each category.


Finalists selected for the Show will be notified of their status, and will be required to provide a high-quality video file on a data-DVD or thumb drive at their own expense. Only the person identified as the entrant will be contacted with the results.
