Our thanks for the many excellent video performance submissions by this year’s competitors. We appreciate your patience as we continue our survey of preliminary and semi-competitive entries.
Due to the availability of some adjudicators, the SIPF anticipates the survey to continue at least one more week. This means notifications of finalist/winner status will be issued on or shortly after August 8. At the time finalists of the fully competitive categories (and winners of the semi-competitive categories) are notified, we will also announce a delayed deadline for final round video submissions. Originally published as due September 20, we anticipate the extended date to be September 27 to allow more time for final submissions as result of the delay.
We thank each of you for incredibly well-prepared submissions. We look forward to delivering the preliminary jury’s decision shortly.
UPDATE, AUG 8: All determination letters have been sent to participants. If you have not received your letter, check your spam folder and then write to email@example.com.
