NewTek has launched the TriCaster Director of the Year Awards, and is now seeking entries from creatives, directors, live content producers and other visual storytellers who regularly use the TriCaster video production system.
The TriCaster Director of the Year Awards will celebrate the innovation, technical skills and creative excellence of the TriCaster producers worldwide. Entries for the awards open on 19 May 2022.
“We want to recognise the visual storytellers that operate TriCasters and highlight how they artfully weave together video into impactful and compelling stories. Content needs more than just technology, it needs talent. With the TriCaster Director of the Year Awards we want to give back to the TriCaster experts who create magic and delight for audiences and the industry,” said Barbara Spicek, President and GM of NewTek.
The categories for this year include -
The TriCaster Director of the Year – Universal best director chosen by the judges
The ESG (Environmental, social and corporate governance) TriCaster Director of the Year Awards
The Corporate TriCaster Director of the Year
The Education TriCaster Director of the Year
The House of Worship TriCaster Director of the Year
The Sports TriCaster Director of the Year
The Live Production TriCaster Director of the Year – including music, events, awards and broadcast.
Any technical director or TriCaster operator can apply online by submitting a brief highlights video that represents their top TriCaster content this year alongside a short synopsis and statement of support. Submissions will then be reviewed by a panel of expert industry judges, to be announced shortly, which will also choose an overall TriCaster Director of the Year from the entrants.
For the ESG TriCaster Director category, the judging panel will choose a shortlist of 10 entries and open the shortlist to a public vote. The public then has a chance to get involved and share their perspective on which creative director has made the most impact on the community with their content.
The winners will be invited to a NewTek gala ceremony in late November, where the winners will share in a $100,000 value prize pool. The awards show will also be streamed live on NewTek TV using a TriCaster.
