This Year's Show

The 21st Annual Awards ceremony will be live-streamed from the Niswonger Performing Arts Center (NPAC) in Greeneville, Tennessee.

The organizers chose the unique location of NPAC in idyllic Greeneville, TN as the location for the 21st GTAs for a multitude of reasons. Said Evelyn Brady-Watters, co-founder of the GTAs, The show must go on, however with Los Angeles still under Covid restrictions, we set our sights on NPAC, a state of the art theatre in Greeneville, TN, a region with a rich cultural heritage, bountiful spirits and a burgeoning new tech sector — we are excited for our show to be live-streamed from Distillicon Valleythis year!”

Sisters Evelyn Brady-Watters and Monica Brady founded the GTAs to recognize the incredibly talented professionals who created the trailers and film marketing; the unsung heroes of the entertainment industry, whose great works fuels the movie and streaming business yet largely remain anonymous.

Said Brady-Watters, “This year, we are also dedicating GTA21 as a tribute to all the unsung heroes in healthcare, food service, transportation, emergency services, and more who went to work (while we stayed home streaming) and kept us all going. We offer our sincerest gratitude and a night to enjoy a fun night of entertainment.”

In lieu of acceptance speeches, we are going to instead request “thanks and credits” for each of your nominated works.

Please email a 15 to 20 second graphic “acceptance” so we can cut to your “thanks and credits” if your work gets the win! We have settled on this as an end graphic for ease and continuity, so you can thank your clients and acknowledge those individuals from the studio who contributed, including your creative team.


All the credits MUST include: 
1. Film name 
2. Studio name or Logo
3. Agency/Trailer House name of the logo
4. Client Thanks 
5. Creative Contributor credits


It is perfectly fine to add VO, music, graphics, SFX, and sound OR just send the approved visual graphic. We will add the VO of the client/studio name and agency if you have not already done so yourselves.

***Please no subtitles with the word trailer or teaser in it. If the trailer has a proper name/title and you want us to include it, we can. We just won’t include Trailer1b. Too generic and redundant– we are The Golden TRAILER Awards, after all!
