Peer Entry Process and FAQ
FilmFreeway Entry Walkthrough
Since FilmFreeway is new to TIVA as an organization (though many of us have used it individually), here are a few off-the-cuff tips for accessing the system and submitting your work:
- The first step in the process will be to set up an initial FilmFreeway profile (if you don’t have one already) and enter your project information; again, you only have to enter your project information once, and that information will be carried through for as many entries as you like.
- The next step is to go in and submit your project for the awards. (Because it’s a new process to a lot of people, we’ve had a few people who thought they’d entered, only to find out they had just entered their project information, but not actually completed the submission process.) Choose your production or skills submission category along the right-hand side of the Peer Awards page (i.e., http://www.filmfreeway.com/TIVAPeerAwards), open the tab and click the big “Submit Now” button. Then you can answer any specific questions necessary for your category (e.g., target audience, subcategories, budget range, etc.) and add that submission to your “shopping cart.” (It works just like most other online shopping sites.)
- Once you have added a submission to your shopping cart, you’ll see a “Cart” link at the top of the page; click on that to see your shopping cart, where you can enter your payment information and click the “Complete Your Order“ button at the bottom of your cart to finalize your submission. That’s all there is to it!
- We do ask that you submit entries one at a time — mostly because that’ll allow us to direct your entry to the appropriate judging team, and make sure that we get the right information for any potential trophy or award certificate (since that may differ depending on which category is being judged). A bit longer to do for multiple-award submitters, but it isn’t especially onerous.
There’s more information available on both the dedicated FilmFreeway entry page and our Rules and Terms page, and as always, you can direct any individual questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
