Main submission deadline extended to Oct. 25th

Hello Friends,

Due to technical issues, I am extending the main submission deadline to October 25, 2019. There will be no late fee attached to the new deadline.  I will be announcing a new late entry deadline next week for anyone who wants to submit after the 25th.

I’d like to also encourage you to join our facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/documentaryfamilyawards/) where we can help you with any submission related question you might have.

Alternatively, email us at support@documentaryfamilyawards.com if your question is sensitive or private in nature.

And for all of you who have entered so far, thank you!

I will have limited access online for this weekend but look forward to jumping into any questions you might have on Monday!

Thank you for your understanding.
