LIVA The inaugural Legal Industry Video Awards 2014 are now open for video submissions from law firms, legal service providers, in-house legal and the legal industry. The Awards have eight categories: legal marketing, informational, training, events, media and ediscovery (with separate categories for legal services and vendors) and will culminate in a virtual film festival and an Awards ceremony.

The Awards are open to anyone in the legal industry and do not have to be IT related. International entries are accepted.

Submissions are judged on creativity, technical quality and matching stated objectives. Trophies and certificates will be awarded to finalists and overall winners in September 2014. Videos accepted up until start of judging June 30th 2014.

The originator of the Awards, Charles Christian of Legal IT Insider, commented: “The legal industry is increasingly investing in creating videos that inform, educate and better market their services and products. We want to recognise and reward this effort and showcase the best of the best.”

The Insider will host all the videos on this website with coverage and updates via the widely-read Insider newsletter, other media partners and social media, including LinkedIn and Twitter hashtag #legalvids
