A panel of judges will select the winners based on submissions and category relevance. Submissions are being accepted for the Fifth Annual Latino DVD Awards now through March 27.
There is no entry fee for sponsors of the dinner; for all others, the entry fee is $150 per title, per category. There is no limit on the number of entries.
A “Best of Show” award also will be presented to the title that the judges deem the best all around for the entire pool of submissions. However, best of show is not a category for separate submissions. All entries will be considered for this category.
