1. WHO WILL RECEIVE THE AWARD?
It is the goal of the Gulf Coast film & Video Festival to recognize the accomplishments of those that have merited an Award for their outstanding project. Ordinarily, it is the “DIRECTOR” of the project that will receive an award with his/her name inscribed on the award’s plate in a winning category (unless otherwise noted). If the Director is NOT present at the awards presentation, the award will be given to the teams representative who will accept the award on behalf of the non-present member OR MAILED TO THE OFFICIAL CONTACT LISTED ON THE ENTRY FORM, if no one is present at the awards ceremony. In case there are multiple “DIRECTORS” (two or more directors) for a single project, no name will be inscribed on the award’s plate and the team member(s) present at the awards presentation will receive and accept the award as a group. If NO members of the team are present and/or NO directors are present at the ceremony, the Award WILL BE MAILED TO THE OFFICIAL CONTACT LISTED ON THE ENTRY FORM. ONLY one award per category will be given out.
