Hello, I am trying to submit a win "Best Sound Design" for Cinema South Film Festival, for movie Labyrinth (III) (2014), but I cannot find the movie in all listed titles (the movie is already in Imdb database). Can you please help me resolve this problem?

Do you know whether the title was just submitted and the page just became live? If so, you might need to wait for a day or two while all areas of the site update to include this new entry.

Thank you for your quick response. The film is in the database for a couple of months.

Slava: Just typing "Labyrinth" alone will not necessarily find your film in the list, because only 20 choices are provided, and there are more than 20 films in the database titled "Labyrinth". Since "Labyrinth" is a common title, you would need to enter the title in its exact IMDb format in order for it to show up correctly in the awards form:

Labyrinth (2014/III)

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Hi, thank you for your answer.I did that - and it worked, BUT it added me another title 'Labyrinth (2012) ' - what should I do now to change it to the right movie (Labyrinth (2014/III)) ?

Slava: That's strange. Can you post the e-mail receipt you received from IMDb right after submitting the award? I would like to see if the receipt showed the correct "Labyrinth".

To fix the problem, though, you should go to the page for the award (http://www.imdb.com/event/ev0002976/), and then submit both a Delete for the incorrect award and an Add for the correct award in the same submission. Your explanation of the Delete should mention that the award is currently listed for the wrong title and you are submitting the correct award in the same submission. (This is helpful to the staff in case both the Delete and the Add wind up being reviewed by different staff members or at different times.)

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Hi,after your reply (7 months ago) I tried every two months to submit a win, but nothing happens. Honestly I don't know why. If somehow you can check out what's the problem, I'll be grateful.

Slava: Please post your last full data submission here on this message board. You can copy it out of the receipt you would have received from IMDb by e-mail immediately after sending it in. Some of the regulars on the board may review it and, if they can, they may provide suggestions as to how to improve the submission to get it included in the database. (Also, please include the submission reference number -- it's an 18-digit number that will look something like 150123-123456-789000.)

    Slava: Here are my comments.

    The award and the category are two different things. For example, at the Academy Awards, the main type of award is the "Academy Award of Merit" or the "Oscar", which has categories such as "Best Picture", "Best Director", etc. The Academy Awards also offers other awards such as the Honorary Award, the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, and other awards.

    In the case of the Cinema South Film Festival, Israel, it looks like the default award is the Festival Prize, so select that in the drop-down menu for Award.

    Also, I don't recommend including the comment "Hello, I am trying to submit this win for 2 months, but no success. Please help to solve this problem." Instead, in the Comments section, provide a link (URL) to a web page on the festival's web site that confirms that you and your film did receive this award.

    I hope this helps. Good luck!

    Hi, thank you for your answer.
    I'm afraid that there is no page on festival's website that listed the winners.
    All I can find is two sites that wrote about the festival and the winners, and if you will translate it from hebrew to english you will find this: Sound Editing Award for Slava Pogorelsky for "Labyrinth" by David Reinlib.

    and two photos of me, getting the award:

    I don't really know how to explain all that when submitting for an award.
    If you can think of any idea that can help, it can be great.
    Thank you for your time, 
    Slava

    Slava: Try submitting the URL http://srita.net/2014/06/22/csf_2014_winners_and_jury_duty/ in the Comments section as evidence of your win. Google Translate seems to do a better job translating that page than it does with the Habama page. Just put in the comments section:

    See http://srita.net/2014/06/22/csf_2014_winners_and_jury_duty/ (in Hebrew) for a listing of the festival winners.

    Good luck!
