EMVA: How did we celebrate the 3rd Annual Ceremony?

An Evening Full of Emotions Went Off as Planned.

It was a night filled with vibrant energy and creativity. We showcased more than 40 music videos, highlighting both local and international talent. We recognized three Slovak artists and over seven from abroad. While we understand the absence of overseas artists, given their location on the other side of the world, we made sure to send their awards and certificates by post. It was an honor to judge and display such beautiful work.

More than 85 atrist & enthusiasts began the evening with a music marathon and a networking session for artists. We screened a variety of genres from different countries, keeping with the tradition of previous years. The energy was high as artists and fans mingled, sharing their passion for music and visual art. Following this lively start, we moved on to the main event.

The main portion of the evening was divided into two segments. In the first, we showcased selected works from Slovak artists, and in the second, we presented the best works from international artists. One unique feature of our festival is the voting process at our events. All attendees, whether artists or passionate video enthusiasts, get a say in which videos resonated with them the most based on their own criteria. With over 85 votes cast, we arrived at the following results.




 We greatly appreciate the arrival of Aneska from abroad, whose new album we christened and awarded during the event. An interesting point was the group "Niečo Navyše," which has consistently placed among the top three in the Slovak category's audience voting for three years in a row. We also congratulate artist Jeff Hilliard, who secured first place at the summer screening with his clip "Consensual," and second place at the main ceremony with his music video "Abadon."
