f.a.q.

What is TMVA?

the Monocular Video Awards have been created to celebrate the storytelling surrounding hunting and the relationship hunters have with nature, conservation and each other. We also want to recognise all the wonderful aspects and stories from hunting that can be overlooked and give back to the global hunting community.

How does it work?

Simply upload your film or clip using the form. A jury made up of experienced hunters will decide who the finalists are and we'll open this up to a public vote. The video with the most votes in each category will win, with the winners announced at the TMVA'18 live show in Nüremberg, March 2019.

Can I enter more than one category?

The Monocular Video Awards recognizes outstanding moments of hunting captured on film in a variety of categories. A video may be entered into multiple categories if appropriate. Videos entered into multiple categories will be reviewed separately for each category entered.

Who can enter?

TMVA is open to both amateur and professional filmmakers and hunters, from all over the world.

What is the Monocular?
