SEPT. 1, 2009 — The best TV DVD titles of the past year will be honored with the sixth annual TV DVD Awards. Winners will be announced in November.
The awards will honor the best TV DVD releases that came to market between Oct. 1, 2008, and Sept. 30, 2009, focusing on the entire DVD treatment — transfer quality, sound and picture, menu design, ease of use, navigation, packaging and other elements relevant to the DVD.
Categories this year include:
• Best Current Series
• Best Contemporary Series (1990s & 2000s)
• Best Vintage Series (1980s and Earlier)
• Best Animation TV DVD
• Best Kidvid TV DVD
• Best Unscripted TV DVD
• Best Nonfiction TV DVD
• Best Miniseries/Made-for-TV Movie
• Best Extras
• Best TV on Blu-ray
• Best Complete-Series Set
A panel of judges will select nominees from among all submissions. Winners will be determined by an online consumer vote held in October at TVShowsOnDVD.com, AgentDVD.com and www.HomeMediaMagazine.com.
A “Best of Show” award also will be presented to the title that in the judges’ opinion is the best all around from the entire pool of submitted entries. However, best of show is not a category for separate submissions.
Please return the entry form with valid contact information, along with 10 finished-product copies of each submission per award category (e.g. one title submitted in 2 different categories means 20 copies) to:
