Film submission

Part of the process for AHEAD Global requires the submission of a short film depicting your shortlisted project. It should demonstrate clearly, succinctly and creatively why your project is worthy of the ultimate accolade: an AHEAD Global Award.

Submission brief

  • Your film should be no shorter than 1 minute, and no longer than 1 minute 30 seconds
  • The film format should be: Apple Pro Res 422, 1920 x 1080 resolution, 16:9 ratio, stereo sound 2 track left and right. Please provide MP4 as a backup
  • In terms of creativity, there is no formal brief. This is your chance to be creative and a final opportunity to wow our judging panel and online voting audience
  • You have the opportunity to update your original entry material that was submitted for the Regional heats
  • We recommended that you do not submit an overall brand video. The film should reflect the specific area of the project, complementing and enhancing the existing material submitted for the Regional heat


  • Editing original material period: 5 October 2018 – 2 December 2018
  • Film entry closing date: 14 December 2018
  • Submit all films to Melanie Page: m.page@mondiale.co.uk

Films will be published online for public voting from 2 January 2019. Voting closes at 5PM UTC on 23 January 2019.
