The votes have been triple-counted, the trophies have been polished and the editors have been taken out of Covid storage and neatly brushed - it's almost time for shots Awards The Americas to announce its winners.

Rather than take up an entire evening running through the talented few who have picked up our Gold, Silver and Bronze accolades, we've decided to break the whole thing down into a week's worth of snackable [is that a word? we heard someone say it], fun-loving episodes, bundling a handful of categories into each.

Presented by shots co-editors Danny Edwards and Jamie Madge, each 10ish-minute nugget will be accompanied by an updated Slate showreel, giving everyone a chance to see the winning and shortlisted work in full.

Monday to Thursday will see the submission-based categories awarded, with Friday's instalment dishing out trophies to the companies and people that have picked up the most points over the course of the entire show.

We can't wait to see you there.

Look below for a breakdown of the days in which categories are awarded, as well as links to the shortlists.

All results, as well as the award shows themselves, will appear at 5pm BST / 12pm EST / 11am CST / 9am PDT on their assigned day.
