Award nomination update

  • Solved
I was nominated for two awards at Genre Celebration Festival this year and submitted them to IMDb on March 12 along with a Silver Award I won at the same festival. The Silver winner was posted to the IMDb site, but the nominations were never posted. I know that nominations have a lower priority SLA than the SLA for winners, but I thought that was odd. This is regarding IMDb update receipt #180312-131545-366000 and Awconst: aw0039718. Not sure what I did wrong. I've submitted more than 200 updates and never had this problem before.  Thanks for your help.

Hello Artie,
Your nomination for Best Director shared with Matthew A. Rebel at the 2018 Genre Celebration Festival is showing on the site. What awards were these other nominations for?
I can't read your submissions as I am just a contributor (albeit an experienced one) not a member of the IMDb staff

There is no category showing for anything called a Silver Award at the Genre Celebration Festival on the IMDb or at http://www.genrecelebration.com/. Do you need to add it as a new award? If you do, that will take time to be accepted and made available on the site

I do see that "How Cartoons Are Made" was nominated at http://www.genrecelebration.com/ as Best Comedy Short and for Best Director

Thanks for your reply. The question is regarding two nominations for Best Comedy Short. http://www.genrecelebration.com lists two of our films under Nominated: Best Comedy Short.
Titles: How Cartoons Are Made (2014) and Lear's Nonsense (2017). I don't know if our submission was rejected or if it has not yet been reviewed. I guess time will tell.
:D

Hi Artie,

It looks like those submissions were rejected as the names you have attached to the award nomination are not referenced on the official website. Please see here for more details.

"Your data does not match the data which has been published by the event's organizers, e.g. you may be sending in some names, but the official body usually publishes companies or no names at all as award recipients."

Please feel free to re-add the award nomination as it is listed on the official website.

Regards,
Will

Hi Will, regarding IMDb update receipt #180312-131545-366000. When I submitted these three nominations, my name did not appear next to the films on the festival site. Since my submission was rejected by IMDb editors (apparently for that reason), I asked Genre Celebration Festival to include my name on their site and they were kind enough to do so. Please, respectfully, I would like to get this resolved before it's ancient history.  Thanks again for your valuable help in the forum.
