Judging
Each year Accolade Global Film Competition receives thousands of entries. Quality and creativity are celebrated in four levels of awards: Best of Show, Award of Excellence, Award of Merit and Award of Recognition.

The judging takes place by in-house staff and a committee of industry professionals including Emmy, Telly and Communicator award nominees and recipients.

As with the Tellys and regional Emmy Awards, entries do not compete against each other. Instead, entries are judged against a high standard of merit and are scored accordingly. Judges score entries on a performance scale and winning entries are recognized and awarded as Awards of Excellence, Awards of Merit, Award of Recognition or no award.

Best of Show honors are granted to the top scoring entry for each season.  Awards of Excellence are granted to entries with truly exceptional filmmaking.  Notable artistic and technical productions are recognized at the Award of Merit award level and Award of Recognition recognizes achievement in a specific category of entry .

No fixed number of awards are granted at any level but rather fluctuate based on the total number of entries received for each competition deadline.

Notification:
Each submission received through the Accolade Global Film Competition website or any film portal will be contacted via electronic mail to confirm entry. Film portals such as Withoutabox and Film Freeway generally also notify through their system.

After judging is completed, winners in all categories will be notified of their award and are provided the opportunity to acquire statuettes and other keepsakes to commemorate their achievement. Submissions that were not awarded will be notified after the judging process.

We proudly comply with Film Festival best practices

Serving Filmmakers with integrity is our top priority.

Humanitarian Award:
Each year the Accolade Global Film Competition grants its Annual Humanitarian Award for dedicated service to Social Justice, Animal Welfare, Political, Environmental, Wellness, or Conscious Awareness issues.
