You'll need to start by preparing a two to three minute long showreel for your online submission. For anyone unfamiliar with the term, a showreel is a short video clip that showcases the artistic work in question. Endeavour to stay within the suggested time frame and make sure the finished video file is smaller than 500mb.
Once your show reel is ready, you can head to the submission page, www.amvca2018.com/submit. You'll need to enter personal details such as your name, country of residence, passport number and more so make sure to have these details on hand. Once you've provided all the necesarry details, hit the submit button. You will then be sent a unique referrence number. Keep it as it's vital for all future correspondence.
If you aren't able to make an online submission don't worry. You can put your show reel on a disc or flash drive and submit it in person at one of the following addresses. (Make sure to quote your unique referrence number when you do this)
