FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I reset my password on the submission site?
How do I submit my work on the submission site?
How long do my streaming links need to be available for viewing?
Links should be active from now until the GMS Awards voting portal closes on February 9, 2024. These will be viewed by a confidential craft committee of ~10 people. If nominated, they will need to be accessed our ~500 voting members on a private voting portal.
I can’t log into Submittable. What do I do?
Your Submittable credentials are separate from your GMS membership username and password. We are unable to help with submittable login issues. Contact Submittable Support at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are having trouble logging in or resetting your password. The reset email can take up to 48 hours to appear and often goes to spam, so don’t delay signing in and starting your submission! If you are unable to retrieve your password in time for the deadline, we recommend creating a new submittable account under a new email.
Does it matter what browser I use for Submittable?
The Submittable platform is optimized for GOOGLE CHROME and FIREFOX browsers. Often error messages can be attributed to the browser that applicant is using.
Will the GMS team be available for submission/tech support up until the December 11th deadline?
GMS offices are closed Dec. 23rd - Jan. 1st. Submit before December 11th in order to receive GMS staff support. We recommend uploading your submission well in advance in case any questions or technical issues arise. For all inquiries, please contact the craft committee email address noted on the submission application page.
Can a non-member nominate a project for the GMS Awards?
Yes. GMS membership is not required for submission, however projects should be nominated only by their music supervisor or someone who was directly involved in production, as submission questions require an in-depth knowledge of the project’s production and process.
TV Promos and trailers - which Awards category should I submit to?
Promos and trailers for all media (film, TV, etc.) should be submitted to the Trailer Awards category.
