Award entry error message

Hi there,
I am really struggling to add a SIFF award from 2008 (I know, it was awhile ago! We gave up trying to add it years ago and now I'm trying again.)
http://www.imdb.com/event/ev0000600/2008
 
each time I try to edit the page in order to add a legitamite credit:
http://myaccount.siff.net/press/detail.aspx?NID=147&year=2008
SIFF Official Selection and MyFestival Feature Film Winner:
Perfect Sport, directed by Anthony O’Brien

I receive the following error: ev0000600 is invalid - even though the award page exists already.

Any help or advice would be hugely appreciated!

Elise: Currently it looks like every award event that I have checked is generating a similar error message when you click "Edit page" from the award page, saying that the event number is invalid.

This must be a bug in the software. I don't know whether it will get resolved quickly or whether we will need the IMDb staff to intervene, but at any rate there is nothing that regular users can do about it at this point.

I'm experiencing the same problem today and just came across this post. The specific error I'm receiving is 'ev0003182' is invalid. Are the Admins aware of the issue, at least?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Struggling to add an award.

I've listed the complete filmography of a friend, and would now like to add the awards he's won.

If I go to the list of events and select one that he won an award at, for example WorldFest Houston, I select the year (2011), then click Edit Page and it says the event is invalid. I've tried the Jules Verne Awards as well and that also appears to be invalid. I click continue and it asks me to select from the drop-down menu below, but there isn't one.

I'm trying really hard to follow everyone's differing advice on how it should be done, but I just can't make it work. Can someone please give me a definitive answer on how to add an award? And then how to add an event that doesn't appear on the list already on IMDb?

MANY, many thanks in advance.

Hi Everyone -

I just wanted to post an update that there is an internal problem with the awards pipeline, so currently award submissions cannot be made.  Our technical staff are aware and are currently working on resolving this problem, as soon as I hear any updates on the progress I will post the information here.

I wanted to post an update that this problem has now been fixed and the award pipeline is now working for submissions, so please try submitting your award data now.  The update form should be working without any errors, however, let us know here if you encounter any problems during the process of submitting, thanks!

Michelle,

Are you still backlogged? I'm still waiting for the entry to appear since submitting last Monday (along with other submissions). Any idea how long the wait might be for us?

Thanks.
