Recognition & Visibility
The ContEnt Awards recognize exceptional quality in independent digital content. The number of followers and social awareness don't matter. While there is certainly no penalty for being well known, we want to reward the best creative talent, even if most of the world hasn't discovered you yet.
All finalists will receive a special designation in the ContEnt Creative Directory, helping to increase their exposure to potential buyers, sponsors, and creative partners.

Finalists & Winners
Three award entries come with the purchase of either the Creator's Visibility Pass or Creator's Master Pass. Once you purchase your pass, you will receive award submission instructions via e-mail. Clips of final content that has been published on the web or via a streaming service will be required (no pitches or works in progress). The ContEnt Awards seek to recognize independent content entrepreneurs and their work. While the content may receive sponsorship and/or have a distribution agreement with a streaming service, multi-channel network, etc, the content must have been originally conceived of, developed, and produced by an independent content creator or creative team.
