Ovation Awards Call for Entries

[Another opportunity that crossed my desk today - thought it might be of interest to some.]

Ovation TV, a national cable network dedicated to arts programming, will give awards for excellence in original arts content, recognizing quality cultural programming suitable for television broadcasting.

Arts organizations are asked to submit entries consisting of video content in the areas of performing arts, visual arts, and artists' profiles. Winning submissions will be broadcast on Ovation TV and the submitting organizations will receive awards of up to $10,000. These awards are your chance to partner with a respected cable television network and bring local and national visibility to your work.

We encourage you to take advantage of this exclusive opportunity by sending your video submission for consideration. The response to this offer has been overwhelming, and Ovation TV has received many requests to extend the deadline. As a result of your requests, the new extended deadline is September 30, 2007. Nominations must be submitted to Ovation TV along with the required submission and release form.
