Every month our jury will only award the best independent filmmakers through private screenings. There will be awards in several Main Categories, and every submission can add numerous Additional Categories to increase their probability to win. Every Winner of the Monthly Edition will receive our Official Certificate (digital format) ready for printing, will be listed on our web site and social networks and can also be shared on respective IMDb pages and on our Official IMDb page. If you want to know how to upload your award, please have a look here.

There may be Honorable Mentions to those filmmakers or projects that haven’t wont their categories, but whose skills and quality deserve to be celebrated. Last but not least, every month, one project from the Finalists of the previous Monthly Edition that hasn’t won may be chosen as a Wild Card Winner and be awarded with the other “Monthly Edition Award Winners”. All the Winners can receive the prestigious Golden Oniros trophy, by paying production cost and shipping cost.

Furthermore, “Monthly Edition Award Winners” will automatically enter the “Best of Year” competition as Annual Official Selection. All the contestants of the Best of Year competition that will enter the Finals, will be invited to the Public Event that will take place in the beautiful La Thuile, Italy, in August 2018, during which the results of Best of Year competition will be revealed, and where Winners will have the possibility to meet other talented filmmakers, producers, directors and actors. Further details and information about the Public Event will be published on our web site and social media in the next few months.

The “Best of Year” Winners will be listed on our web site for the next whole year and will receive an InkTip Script Listing to promote themselves and their scripts to InkTip’s entire network of producers, managers, and agents.
