Please note: Items submitted are NOT able to be returned.
By submitting your entry to the Advocacy in Action Awards, you grant Music for All the right to use any submitted materials, including but not limited to photos and video, for editorial, analytical, promotional, or any other purposes without additional compensation or permission. In addition, you acknowledge that your entry and any corresponding materials are not returnable. The complete submission of an entry indicates acknowledgment and agreement to these terms.
Video submissions and supporting video materials may be submitted in one of two ways. You may upload a link to a video hosted via an online platform, such as YouTube or Vimeo. Videos may also be submitted as digital attachments or via a physical storage device, such as a CD or USB drive. Videos submissions (e.g. Outstanding Recruitment Video, etc) have a 20 minute maximum length. Supporting video materials may be up to three minutes in length.
Please note: Video materials submitted as file attachments will only be accepted in the following formats: .mp4 or .mov video files.
A: No. You may submit as many entries to as many categories as you wish, but keep in mind that multiple entries each require a separate application.
A: YES – of course you can! Everyone has different versions of their program book – t-shirts – promotional items etc. So yes, if you have more than one – up your odds and enter them all!
A: Yes. An entry that fulfills the requirements of a submission in more than one category may be entered in both categories. Please note that every submission requires a separate application.
A: Anyone is eligible to submit an entry for the Advocacy in Action Awards. We do ask, however, that anyone nominating their local music program verify their submission with the signature of their program’s director/instructor.
A: Evaluators will include educators, administrators, community leaders, Music for All partners, and business leaders recognized for achievement in each category.
A: Each category will be assigned a panel of 3-5 evaluators. This panel will evaluate based on criteria specific to their respective category.
Each and every music program that enters is unique; therefore, evaluation is based on the subjective opinion of the judges based on their experience and expertise in the profession and their knowledge of that category area.
We do not reveal the names of the evaluators as we make every effort to protect them from questions – opting to direct all the questions about the evaluation process and the awards directly to Music for All instead.
A: Even though you may be submitting your entries in July or August, entries will not be evaluated until October. Even after the judging takes place, there is work that must occur in order to prepare the materials for the Awards Presentation and online publishing. We ask that all links remain active through January of the next calendar year.
