LMGI Awards honor the visual contribution locations make to a motion picture, television production or commercial. The locations must be artistically integral to the story being told, and the Location Professionals who are nominated must have demonstrated an innate understanding that the proper location is not only a backdrop for action, but also sets tone, reveals character, and enhances the narrative.

With ingenuity and a discerning eye, the Location Professional is a vital part of the creative team. The value of that contribution should be reflected in the submission form below.

The criteria for eligibility in a Contemporary Television Series are:

    1. Your submission must have an initial broadcast between June 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020.
    2. At least 60% of the production must have shot on location (including 2nd Unit and VFX units if applicable).
    3. A link to the Official Trailer must be provided.  ** Note:  Must be Youtube or Vimeo format**

Submission deadline is 11:59pm, Pacific Standard Time, Wednesday, June 30, 2020. The LMGI Entry Curation Committee will select submissions to put forward for a vote by LMGI membership.

All finalists will be invited to attend the Awards gala at TBD on Saturday, August 29th, where the winners will be announced.
