The International Christian Visual Media Association has announced new rules and the 2020 submission deadlines for the Crown Awards for Christian films and filmmakers.

If you are looking to submit to the 2020 ICVM Crown Awards – or know of someone who might want to submit – please read the following information carefully!     This year, the following major changes are in effect:

** Starting May 13,  all submissions must be submitted through FilmFreeway.   Here is the link you will use to submit an entry:

**  The previous requirement to be an ICVM Member no longer applies!    Anyone can submit.    However, current active ICVM Members can receive a 50% discount off the standard submission fees.    Get your ICVM member discount code direct from ICVM.

**   This year, there is a submission fee for each category – not per film title as in the past.   To review the fees, go to the FilmFreeway link given above.   Also note that there are 3 tiers of fees.


Save the most money by submitting before the EarlyBird deadline of June 15.

On June 16 the Regular fee applies with a submission deadline of July 24.

After July 24, any late submissions will be received until August 15 at a higher fee.

Please refer to the FilmFreeway site for more information on the rules and awards.     If you have further questions, please contact Nancy Rogers, our Crown Awards Administrator at
