Sprockets Music Video Festival
SPROCKETS MUSIC VIDEO COMPETITION & SHOW was born in 2004 when Film Athens was invited to add a film component to the well established AthFest Music and Arts Festival. For 8 years filmmakers and musicians joined forces to create a spectacular show. The "Best Music Video" award is chosen by 5 impartial judges. Each year we ask 5 established music and film industry professionals to be a judge and choose the Best Music Video for the competition. In past years we have had judges who were #1 song writers, Grammy, Rockefeller, and Peabody award winners. Their decision is based on their personal expertise as music and film industry professionals. The "Audience Choice" award is chosen by audience ballot the night of the Sprockets Show. The Awards Trophies are created by the amazing Beverly Babb (www.babbsteel.com)! Beverly donates her time and talent to create steel trophies for both the “Best of” and “Audience Choice” award winners. The "Best Music Video" and "Audience Choice" videos are screened and awarded at the Flagpole Music Awards at the Historic Morton Theatre.
