Submissions Now Open

    The LMGI Awards honor the visual contribution of locations to film, television, and commercial productions. The locations must be artistically integral to the story, and the nominated Location Professionals must demonstrate an innate understanding that locations set tone, reveal character, and enhance the narrative, as well as providing a backdrop for action.  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 your submission.  The LMGI Awards also honor outstanding Film Commissions that go above and beyond expectations.

    Make the most of being homebound:  catch up on viewing films and television programming.  Due to the explosion in international television production, please note we have introduced a new category:  TV Serial Program, Anthology or Limited Series.

    Anyone can make a submission–which must have debuted between June 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020 (13-month calendar of eligibility); with at least 60% of the production shot on location. The Entry Curation Committee will announce the nominees July 2020.   Unfortunately Covid 19 has put our venue announcement on hold, but we are hoping for October 2020.
