Kodak Gongs deadline now April 11

The Kodak Gongs have extended their deadline two weeks, and is now 4pm, April 11, 2006. Must have been a lack of entries...or, as CB put it:

"The extension is a result of the recent announcement of The Gongs inclusion in CB Asia’s Creative Rankings and the resultant level of interest in entering in this year
from a dramatically increased number of agencies and production companies throughout Asia.

The 2006 Kodak Gongs Award Program recognizes excellence in the ideas and craft of commercial moving images in Asia Pacific.
Also this year The Kodak Gongs have introduced four new award categories to increase the award chances of entries that are based upon local cultures and plays on local language or visuals.:

They are:
Best of North Asia
Best of North East Asia
Best of South East Asia
Best of Pacific
Aimed to cover entry from all facets of Production, Production Design, Animation and
Post Production, Advertising Agencies, New Media, and Online Developers within the
Asia- Pacific region, The Gongs will recognise excellence in the craft and ideas of the commercial moving image.
The Kodak Gongs Call for Entry is now open and closes on April 11, 2006. Entries can
be submitted online: www.thegongs.org

The Kodak Gongs are judged in two rounds by panels of experts from the Asia Pacific
Region and the rest of the world. The round one judging panel includes the following:
Round 1 Australia & New Zealand judge’s will be available on The Kodak Gongs
website, with Asian Representatives to follow shortly.
Visit www.the gongs.org"

This is only really a year or so old and is really not aimed at creatives as such - Mandy Kennedy got one last year though - but it is important for the techies so hopefully it will be well supported by Kiwi film cos and post houses etc.
