New York Festivals has made a call for entries for the 2010 International Television and Film Awards. The announcement marks the merger of two of NYF’s competitions: New York Festival’s Television Programming and Promotion Awards alongwith the International Film and Video Awards. This newly formed competition will honour “The World’s Best Work” in both Television Programming and Promotion and Film and Video.
"As different forms of media are increasingly overlapping, the New York Festivals has decided to merge both the Television Programming and Film and Video Awards” said NYF President, Michael O’Rourke.
The New York Festivals International Television and Film Awards will maintain the previous award categories from the original competitions and has added new categories dedicated to work that are showcased online. Television categories include: news, documentary, information and entertainment programming, music video, infomercial, promotion, spots, openings and IDs. The new competition will continue to salute Film and Video categories, such as feature length, short and documentary films, informational, educational, corporate and industrial film productions; home video and student productions.

Entries that are less than ten minutes in length will be judged online, while entries longer than ten minutes will be judged onsite by an international panel of industry professionals. All winning entries of the 2010 International Television and Film Awards will be featured in the showcase section of New York Festival's website.
