No, entries must not have been entered in the Golden Drum competition in previous years.
Can I enter my work multiple times into one group?
An individual entry may be registered once in the same group, EXCEPT in sections One-Channel and Omni-Channel Drum, where one entry can be registered into up to three different categories within each group. In all groups in section Craft Drum (A. Industry Craft, B. Motion Craft, C. Digital Craft and D. Innovation Craft), and Creative Media Excellence Drum, (B. Excellence in Media), the same entry can be submitted into multiple categories within those specific groups.
Can I enter a series?
You can enter a series in section One-Channel Drum group A. Film, B. Print, C. Out of home and D. Audio, section Craft Drum group A. Industry Craft, B. Motion Craft, C. Digital Craft and D. Innovation Craft, section Creative Media Excellence Drum group B. Excellence in Media, and section All Juries group A. Genius Loci/Local Spirit, B. Social good and C. Game Changer.
I am entering the series as a whole.
First entry of the series will be charged by the entry fee for the individual group (by the entry fee posted on the Golden Drum website Fees & Payment), while each additional entry within the series will be charged a flat fee of 140 € per entry (no matter how many entries).
I am entering the series as a group of individual works.
Entrant submits any number of works as individual entries and pays the entry fee for each entry (by the entry fee posted on the Golden Drum website Fees & Payment). The jury will judge each part/work of the series separately, each part/work if awarded is given separate points. The jury reserves the right to award only individual parts/work of the series.
Where can I find the technical requirements to enter my work?
Why is it important that all the information in my form is written correctly and in the same way?
This is important for the awards that are presented on the basis of the Golden Drum’s point system.
Do we need to send any physical materials for our entry?
No, you do not need to send any physical materials to our Festival office.
I can’t finalise my entry. What can I do?
If you see a red dot next to your entry it means that you don’t have all the required materials, you have too many of them or you don’t have the correct materials ... In conclusion, something is not okay with your materials and that’s why you can’t finalise your entry. You should check Technical requirements and upload the correct materials. In case you still have problems with finalising your entries please contact the Festival office.
I can’t verify my company's VAT number.
Make sure your VAT number is the same as it is in VIES system
(for EU). Click Verify VAT number. In case it doesn’t match check how it’s written there click EDIT and change it. In case you still have problems please contact the Festival office.
How to make a good case movie?
For most of the Groups, you need to prepare a case film to present your work. In some other
Groups and categories, a case film is also an optional material that allows you to better present your work.
The case film shall be presented to the juries and please bear in mind that all jury members judge all the works entered. The juries expect the case film to be clear and concise by showing key creative solutions and results, less so in terms of its effectiveness. For a reference on good case films, please check the showcase of awarded entries from previous Festivals on www.goldendrum.com.
