The Web publication Legal IT Insider has announced a new international competition to pick the best legal industry videos. The Legal Industry Video Awards 2014 is accepting submissions from law firms, legal service providers, in-house legal and legal vendors.

The awards are open to anyone in the legal industry. There are eight categories for submissions: legal marketing, informational, training, events, media and e-discovery (with separate categories for law firms and vendors). The competition will culminate in a virtual film festival and an awards ceremony.

Submissions will be judged on creativity, technical quality and matching stated objectives, according to Charles Christian, editor-in-chief of Legal IT Insider. Trophies and certificates will be awarded to finalists and overall winners in September 2014. Videos will accepted until June 30, 2014. 

All the submissions will be available on the awards site. (Some are already posted.)
