2019 Entries due November 1.

NEW Online Entry System! All entries will be uploaded within your own account.

How to prepare your 2019 Entries:

How do I enter?

  1. Write up to a 150 word description of your idea in a Word document.

  2. Decide which execution(s) best represent your idea. You may enter up to ten separate assets including your write up.

    The 50 instructions for uploading! PLEASE NOTE NEW CHANGES.

    Please read the following to help with your upload process in our new entry upload system.

    **Important note** since The 50 does not use categories and each submission is allowed 10 pieces including your write up, make sure to enter everything under Cross Platform, Integrated Campaign, 60-Integrated Advertising Campaign. This will enable you to upload up to 10 pieces. All winning entries will be categorized within the correct category for AAF District and National judging.

    If the system says you already have an account you probably do have one associated with your email because of a previous 50 winning entry that was forwarded to AAF District completion. Trigger the system to send a new password to you by clicking forgot password.

    What do I upload? Each Entry assets, up to 10. Uploads may be of any file type. Maximum file size is 1gb in size. 

    What type of video formats are supported? We support popular web, consumer and professional media formats. Examples include 3GP, AAC, AVI, FLV, MP4 and MPEG2. Quicktime files ending in .mov are also generally accepted, however, .mov files using proprietary codecs such as RED, ARRI or Avid will not be transcoded and therefore are not accepted.

    Digital entries: Entry submission can include submission of creative assets either via digital file uploads, JPEG screenshots (for Social Media) or submission of URLs for judging (carefully follow the submission instructions during the online entry process).
