    *ACTING FINALISTS*

    Acting Finalists will be asked to put themselves on tape with SIDES that we will provide. Per the request of Agents and Casting Directors on our panel.

    *TWO WAYS TO GET TO THE FINALS*

    1. NexTv INTERNAL SELECTION PROCESS – THIS IS THE MAIN PART OF OUR COMPETITION where you advance solely based on the merits of your work (how viable it is in today's actual entertainment marketplace)?

    2. SHORTCUT TO THE FINALS(Viewer's Choice "mini-competition") - We have added 3 additional spots in the finals this year for AUDIENCE FAVORITES.

    IMPORTANT: - This is an OPTIONAL 'competition-within-the-competition'. IF YOU PREFER NOT TO HAVE YOUR WORK POSTED ON LINE, SIMPLY LET US KNOW. IT WILL HAVE NO BEARING ON YOUR STATUS IN THE COMPETITION.

    - We will post your work THE MONTH AFTER YOU SUBMIT YOUR WORK. (ex: if you Submit in March, we will post your submission on April 15)

    - Viewer's will have 4 weeks to VOTE FOR THEIR FAVORITE SUBMISSION of the month. The winner advances to the finals, bypassing the Internal Selection Process (and bypassing the Quarter & Semi-Finals).

    *All submissions (regardless of Viewer's Choice results) will remain in the competition and will go through the NexTV Internal Selection Process (meaning, win or lose the peer-voting, you're still in this competition!)

    note: Our PANEL OF INDUSTRY LEADERS will view our finalists' work and have FINAL SAY over the competition winners.
