Submissions for the 2018 Crown Awards are closed. Make plans now to submit your film next year – due April 1, 2019!

Nominations

Your company must be a current member of ICVM in order to submit an entry. You may renew your membership online. It is the producer’s responsibility to nominate his or her own project, regardless of who is the distributor. Thus, a distributor who did not actually make the product cannot nominate a production. (This will avoid confusion over names, categories and other matters that are best left in the hands of the filmmakers themselves.) The exceptions to this rule are distributors who have either an exclusive deal on a particular film for the church market or invested more than 50% of ones budget.

Eligibility
Any member producer can nominate a film. This includes producers around the world who are working in visual media in any way. A project can be nominated for any of the applicable categories.

DON’T FORGET to update the Christian Movie Database with your newest films. Go to www.christianmoviedatabase.com and follow the simple instructions. Contact Rick Garside ([email protected] or 626-369-3630) if you have any questions about it. Remember – churches and customers are far more likely to use this resource and buy your products if the web site stays CURRENT and updated.

If you have any questions, feel free to call Paul Marks at the ICVM administration office at 303-694-4286 or Rick Garside at 626-369-3630. You may also email your questions to [email protected].
