In the last years I won 4 Best Sound awards in different festivals, only two appear in my profile. I ́ve been writing to IMDB with no answer. I payed for IMDB pro, and submitted this changes many times. I could never add this to my profile, frustrating.

Raul: Can you post your last unsuccessful submissions of the missing award(s) here on this message board? You can copy them out of the receipts you would have received from IMDb by e-mail immediately after sending them in. Some of the regulars on the board may review them and, if they can, they may provide suggestions as to how to improve the submissions to get them included in the database. (Also, please include the submission reference numbers -- it's an 18-digit number that will look something like 140123-123456-789000.)

    Raul: When there is an error on IMDb for an award/nomination in terms of some of the co-nominees not being listed, like what happened here, the way to correct it is to submit a Delete of the existing award listing and an Add of the correct award listing, in the same submission. In addition, a link to the official award listing (which lists all four of the recipients) should be included with both the Delete and the Add. Here's how to do this:

    Go to the page for the Ariel Awards at http://www.imdb.com/event/ev0000001/. Click "Edit page".

    On the next screen, select "Correct/Delete". Click "Continue".

    On the next screen, go to the listing for the Best Sound (Mejor Sonido) win for La jaula de oro. In the drop-down box to the left of the listing, select "Delete". Then scroll down to the end of the listing of all the awards and nominations. Below the last award listing, there will be a gray line labeled "Add" with a drop-down box to the right of it. In that drop-down box, select "1 Win/Nomination". Click "Check these updates".

    On the next screen, go to the existing Best Sound win listing for the film, which should be highlighted in green. In the Explanation box there, enter something like this: "This entry lists only one of the four people who received this award as listed at http://www.academiamexicanadecine.org.mx/56entregadelariel2014/ganadores.asp. I am submitting a correct listing that includes all four people in this same submission."

    Then scroll down to the end, where you will find a blank award entry to be filled out. 
    For Award, select "Silver Ariel".
    For Category, select "Best Sound (Mejor Sonido)".
    For Rank, select "Winner (1)".
    For Number of titles, choose 1.
    For Number of recipients, choose 4.
    In the Comments box (the one labeled "Optional, hidden: any other information regarding your submission"), enter "I am submitting this to correct the entry where only one recipient was previously listed by IMDb. There were actually four recipients as listed at http://www.academiamexicanadecine.org.mx/56entregadelariel2014/ganadores.asp."

    Click "Re-check these updates".

    On the next screen, scroll down to the end and enter the film's title and the names of the four people as you normally would submit them. Click "Re-check these updates".

    On the next screen, your data should appear with a green background and you should be able to click "Submit these updates".

    Good luck!

    Thank you for the instructions.
    I think it didn ́t work anyway.

    "This Win / Nomination has been rejected. You need to correct this Win / Nomination before it will be accepted."

    What do I do now?
    Thank you.

    Raul L.:

    Congratulations on your wins.

    I tested most of the procedure that Gromit82 suggested above.  I continued only to the point of "checking" the updates (I did not submit them).  After I had entered all of the necessary data, the system reported that it was ready to accept the data without rejection.

    Suggestions:

    Please check the explanatory message that follows below the rejection message.  For example, here is one possible message:

    "... No titles, people, companies or supplementary info.  Please add details of the title(s), people or companies the award was given to. ..."

    In that case, make sure you've entered the names of the winners, Recipient #1, #2, #3, and #4, into the appropriate boxes located in the area above the rejection message. ... If you did that, and the system still issues another rejection message, does it say this?:

    "... Sorry, no suggestions available. We are unable to accept submissions of Wins & Nominations for names that we don't already have a database record for. ..."

    In that case, please check the names that you entered and
    make sure that those entries are exactly correct in this format:
    Locatelli, Raúl   (including the comma)
    ... etc.

    If the rejection shows some other explanatory message that I haven't described above, please copy-and-paste the relevant portion of the explanatory message into a reply here.
