The UK Music Video Awards opens for entries

The UK Music Video Awards 2022 (UKMVAs) is now open for entries. Back for its 15th annual event, the competition is accepting work accomplished in the UK and around world over the last year. Entrants can submit their music videos via the official website at: www.ukmva.com. The deadline is set for August 3rd 2022 and the ceremony will take place on October 27th 2022 at Magazine London, near North Greenwich’s 02 Arena.


The UKMVAs is always a special night in the calendar and we’re excited that we’ll be able to welcome even more people to this year’s show with the move to Magazine London,” details Event Director Louise Stevens. “But in the meantime, we’re excited to see what visual treasures will come through our doors this year. Even after 14 years, we’re still blown away by the extent and variety of creative talent that gets submitted for the UKMVAs."



Projects entered at the awards must have been completed between August 1st 2021 and July 31st 2022. There are 37 categories, from technical craft and live video to special projects and directorial achievement by music genre. There are also awards for individual success in several different fields of endeavour, and a new Best Director of Photography prize has been added to celebrate an exceptional body of work created by an individual.


Since its inception in 2008, the UKMVAs has grown into a key annual event for the world of music video production. The importance of the UKMVAs to the creative community both in the UK and across the world was underscored by the emphatic return of the ceremony’s live audience last November.
