REGULATIONS CONCERNING THE PROMOTION OF FILMS ELIGIBLE FOR THE 93RD OSCAR AWARDS
In an effort to maintain a high degree of fairness and transparency in the process by which producers, distributors, marketers and others (collectively referred to as “film companies”) promote films eligible for Oscars Awards to NOSC members, the coordinators of Nigerian Oscar Selection Committee (NOSC) has developed a set of regulations for the annual rite generally known as “campaigning.”
In an attempt to strengthen this effort and streamline the mailing of awards materials to NOSC, ALL sanctioned items for eligible films must be sent using an NOSC approved mailing platform. Any film company that wishes to send materials to the NOSC must follow the approved protocol. Material sent are for the awards purposes only and will not be shared publicly.
It is the NOSC’s goal to ensure that the Awards process is conducted in a fair and ethical manner. The NOSC requires that its members make choices solely from the standpoint of the artistic and technical merits of the eligible films and achievements.
If any campaign activity is determined by the coordinators to work in opposition to that goal, whether or not anticipated by these regulations, the coordinators may take any corrective actions or assess any penalties, including disqualification, that in its discretion it deems necessary to protect the reputation and integrity of the awards process. Furthermore, any NOSC member who has authorized, executed or otherwise enabled a campaign activity that is determined by the coordinators to have undermined the letter or spirit of these regulations may be subject to suspension of membership or expulsion from the NOSC.
It should not be assumed that any tactics or activities not specifically addressed by these regulations are acceptable. The NOSC is willing to review any materials or answer any questions that arise in advance. Marketers are also urged to familiarize themselves with the NOSC’s regulations for using its intellectual properties
