2013-2014 LOUIE ENTRY INFORMATION

The entry information and rules only change slightly each year, so reviewing this now will help you when you’re ready to enter. The deadline to enter and drop off your work is December 12. Please note: There were significant issues with the AAF entry software last year, so the AAF partnered with a new developer for this year's competition. The software is more user-friendly and still allows for uploads of digital images and files, but please take a look now and familiarize yourself with what's new!

Some items of note:

· you must upload broadcast entries, such as radio and TV spots

· no more digital images CDs, the software will prompt you to upload an image online

· AAF-Louisville does not accept online payment for Louie entries so you must still bring payment with you (either check or credit card) when you drop off your work

What hasn't changed....you still need to enter the information online and then physically bring paperwork, payment, and printed samples (if applicable) to the Log-in location or the AAF-Louisville office by the deadline date.
