COMPOSITES/FIVE LIFT RULE: Except where noted, a composite is defined as a sampling of a minimum of two and no more than five (5) representative segments or elementsthat convey to a judging panel the scope, breadth, or range of an individual’s talents or of coverage of a special event. The elements within a composite, unless otherwise noted, are to be “as aired” with no internal edits or post production work, such as music or special effects. Demo reels or montages are not allowed.One to two seconds of black between cuts, with no audio or slates must be added to separate segments within the composite. Unless otherwise noted, a straight lift from a long work may be included as an element of a composite, but there must be no editing of the lift. For program entries, composite may only contain content from one episode of the series, not multiple installments. If there is NO black between cuts; the entry will be disqualified.
PROGRAM/SEGMENT: Categories with a Program/Segment designation allow for entry of a full-length program or a complete segment from a full-length program. Time limits are noted in the category description. To bring longer formatted programs into time compliance, the entrant may take FIVE complete lifts from the original program.
SHORT FORM: Think “spot length” – or generally 1:00 minute or less. Examples would be PSA’s, commercials, news promotions, pre-produced cold opens, teases, etc.
SERIES (News): Two or more reports covering the same story. A composite of unrelated stories is not a series. Series entries must include a minimum of 2 reports.
SERIES (Program): A program that appears in essentially the same format two or more times a year.
