Sprockets Music Video Festival
Started in 2004, this annual festival is held each summer in Athens, Georgia – a city known worldwide for its vibrant local music and arts scene.
The “Best Music Video” award is chosen by 5 impartial judges. Each year we ask 5 established music and film industry professionals to be a judge and choose the Best Music Video for the competition.
In past years we have had judges who were #1 song writers, Grammy, Rockefeller, and Peabody award winners. Their decision is based on their personal expertise as music and film industry professionals. Away from the hubbub of the big city, we feel Athens is the perfect place to celebrate our love for music videos and bring together the international music video industry.

- recognizes emerging and established filmmakers
