MCAI Media Festival Deadline Oct 31, 2010

The 2010 MCA-I Media Festival deadline has been extended. For a chance at winning a coveted Golden Reel, send your best work postmarked by Oct. 31. Since 1978, the MCA-I Media Festival celebrates excellence in media communications and has a number of unique features that professionals really appreciate.

Judges are experienced industry professionals. Entries are evaluated on message development, creative treatment and various technical aspects. A respected tradition of the MCA-I Media Festival is that every entry is judged on its own merit. Any category may have multiple Golden, Silver or Bronze winners.

And YES—we’re returning to the MCA-I award tradition of passing on the judges' comments to the entrant!  No other award festival offers this added value!

MCA-I, formerly known as the International Television Association, was established in 1970. Winning a Golden Reel is an international award that will RAISE your visibility among your clients and peers. After the judging, a press release template will be available on the MCA-I website so you can send it to your local media and post on the web in both your social networking sites and industry blogs. MCA-I members may use the Press Release area on the International website.
