Video Submission Awards

As the name implies, everyone from across the Nation will have the opportunity to submit footage of plays from any BAFA-approved league fixture that took place through 2016.

There are four core categories here for which we will be accepting game tape submissions: Catch of the Year, Rush of the Year, Play of the Year and BOOM! of the Year!

So long as you find away to get tape to us ahead of the deadline – either via HUDL/Krossover/YouTube/One Drive/Google Drive/We Transfer/Drop Box/Owl/Facebook and state which category you are submitting for? We will watch it, short list those that really stand out to us, and offer the top plays up for public vote!

As above, in cases where there are sufficient submissions, the awards will be broken down by format – Adult, Women’s, University and Cadet/Youth/Junior.

BOOM! of the Year

We’re looking for biggest (legal!) hit heard around the Britball Nation!

It can be a tackle, a block, or trucking someone fool enough to stand between you and the goal line – just so long as it makes us wanna shout BOOM!

The only criteria are that it needs to be from a competitive BAFA-sanctioned fixture, played in the UK during 2016, and that the hit needs to be made in such a fashion as that it does not violent either the rules or spirit of the game.

We welcome submissions from all BAFA-sanctioned formats of the game: i.e. Cadets, Youth, Junior, Women’s, University, Adult, Flag.

Find a way to get your BIG play across to us and we’ll shortlist the top few, before opening it all up to the public vote!

How to submit your nomination:

Simply find a way, ANY way, to make sure we at DC watch your big hit.

You can send us raw footage via e-mail (Editor@DblCoverage.com), We Transfer, Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive (even VHS if you’re the Canterbury Chargers!).

You can send us links to the specific play/s you want us to watch on HUDL, Krossover, YouTube, Vimeo, etc, and just send them in to our Facebook page!

Just make sure you’ve set your permissions so that the video is public, else we might see nothing!

Please make sure to specify:

  • The name of the player/s making the play you want considered for the award (i.e. Pass thrown by James Johnson, caught by John Jameson, big block by JJ Jimjon)
  • Which category/ies you’re submitting your tape into when you complete your submission (i.e. Catch of the Year AND Play of the Year)

Please remember only plays from 2016 are considered when looking at nominees.

Deadline for nominations is 23:59 GMT on 24/12/2016.

Prize Information

Prize information to follow (awaiting specifics).

Winner selection

Voting will open once we’ve had a chance to watch and shortlist submissions and will remain open for a limited period of time, specified at time of voting commencing.

Winner will be selected by popular vote, as represented by the most ‘likes’ on the video of choice.

 

Catch of the Year

Prove to us that OBJ doesn’t have the monopoly on insane grabs. One-handed, while snapchatting on your way into the end zone? Now we’re talking.

Receiver plucking the pigskin from the air for the game winning touchdown? Or defensive back snatching the ball outta the sky to shut down the comeback? Hells, if a lineman mysteriously gets his mitts on the ball and makes the most of it – we wanna see it!

The only criteria are that it needs to be from a competitive BAFA-sanctioned fixture, played in the UK during 2016.

We welcome submissions from all BAFA-sanctioned formats of the game: i.e. Cadets, Youth, Junior, Women’s, University, Adult, Flag.

Rush of the Year

We wanna see your best Beastmode impersonation as you drag would-be tacklers with you into the end zone… Or perhaps you made a jump-cut so sharp you left the whole opposing team scarred for life!

It doesn’t need to be from a hand off – it could be a kick return, a scoop and score, or even just a really impressive piece of YAC – either way, we want to see the best the Nation has to offer!

The only criteria are that it needs to be from a competitive BAFA-sanctioned fixture, played in the UK during 2016.

Play of the Year

We’re looking for THE standout play from 2016, captured on camera.

It can be offence, defence, special teams – just so long as it makes our jaws hit the floor!

We’re talking Beastmode, we’re talking Manning to Plax – the kinda plays you have to watch thrice over and you’re still confused just how it happened.

The only criteria is that it needs to be from a competitive BAFA-sanctioned fixture, played in the UK during 2016.

We welcome submissions from all BAFA-sanctioned formats of the game: i.e. Cadets, Youth, Junior, Women’s, University, Adult, Flag.
