The Accolade is unique in the industry.

Each year, the Accolade Global Film Competition receives thousands of entries. Quality and creativity are celebrated in three levels of awards: Best of Show, Award of Excellence, and Award of Merit.
The judging takes place by in-house staff and a committee of industry professionals including Emmy, Telly, and Communicator award nominees and recipients.
Past Accolade Award of Excellence winners include The Lady in Number 6: Music Saved My Life, a film which won the Academy Award for Best Documentary: Short Subject on March 2, 2014.
