Guess what… ON Networks is now accepting submissions for the Greenlight Awards, which will culminate at SXSW 2008. Here’s the announcement:
ON Networks, in partnership with the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Conference and Festival, today announced it is now accepting submissions for the recently announced Greenlight Awards at www.thegreenlightawards.com.
The Greenlight Awards competition is the industry’s first to recognize the next great, original and episodic digital series. Finalists will compete in two categories – best concept and best show – and will be judged by a panel of prominent industry judges who represent independent content creation, digital distribution and new media. Among them are actor Luke Wilson, writer/director Richard Linklater, and Zadi Diaz, co-creator and host of the hit web series EPIC-FU. Additional judges will be announced later this month.
The winners of this exciting new media challenge will be recognized at the Greenlight Awards event during SXSW 2008, March 7-15. They will receive cash awards of $2,000 and $10,000 and an opportunity to develop and distribute their shows through ON Networks. Submissions will be accepted through February 15, 2008. Details on the awards submission criteria can be found at www.thegreenlightawards.com.
