Uniting Event Filmmakers & Digital Imagers Worldwide With LIVE Interactive Video

Deadline for all entries is 5:00 pm July 22. "Entries are already being received, and with EXPO being LIVE Online in October, this is an excellent year to enter your best work,” Zale said.
"There is an all-new Panel of CEA Judges every year, and you never know who is going to enter. The Competition is open to all industry professionals worldwide. There are 16 categories, and you can enter up to 2 entries in each category. If you value your work, believe in your creativity, and want the chance for the highest honor and recognition in our industry, then you should enter the 2011 WEVA Creative Excellence Awards Competition before the 5pm deadline July 22."

Presentations will use the cinematic tools of our industry in creating an all-new EXPO program custom-tailored for interactive participation and system-training LIVE Online.
Zale adds, "instead of just texting, attendees can choose LIVE interactive video for networking and showing clips to one another. Attendees and exhibitors can flip on webcams to meet face-to-face LIVE, on large-screen TV displays, even meet in video conference-style groups with all faces LIVE on-screen at once.
"During the WEVA EXPO 2011 Conference Sessions," Zale relates, "leading wedding & event filmmakers and digital imagers from around the world will share a ton of on-location footage and behind-the-scenes B-roll to show new techniques in detail, and HOW they achieve breathtaking creativity.
"Exhibitors will be able to use LIVE video to demonstrate cutting-edge technologies and all-new gear. It’s the first time suppliers, event filmmakers and digital imagers from around the globe will be uniting simultaneously via LIVE online video. The 21st Annual WEVA EXPO will be a 21st century breakthrough for our industry nationally and worldwide."
