Which category should I enter?
The CitNOW Video Awards has multiple categories to choose from. We developed categories that cater for all types of video used during the sales, aftersales and vehicle repair process. There can be overlap in some of the categories, and it is up to the entrant to choose which is most appropriate for a particular entry.
Can I enter more than one category?

Entrants may enter multiple categories as they see fit to increase their chances of winning an award, i.e. a sales video can be entered into the ‘best sales video’ and ‘most creative use of video’ categories.
