From the President.
Warmest greetings ACS members, colleagues and sponsors,
The 2021 ACS State &Territory Awards for Cinematography season is rapidly approaching, with the Awards presentations dates and locations, obviously subject to COVID RESTRICTIONS but currently as follows:

NSW & ACT     Saturday, 30 October 2021  @ Art Gallery of NSW
SA & WA          Saturday, 6 November 2021 @ Royal Adelaide Golf Course
VIC/TAS           Saturday, 13 November 2021  @ Conversation Quarter, State Library of Victoria
QLD/NT           Saturday, 20 November 2021  @ Brisbane City Hall

As soon as the Awards bookings are open you will be advised. Obviously, it’s difficult to know whether we’ll be able to meet in person for our various Awards presentations but all venues are on standby and ready to go. I think it will ultimately depend on vaccine targets, so jump in and we may just be in a position to share a cold one together.

The ACS continues to work with other Guilds and Associations in the Australian Screen Industry Group, and recently contributed to a document submitted to the Senate enquiry regarding amendments to the Producer Offset and here is a link to that submission - VH ASIG Submission to Treasury Law Amendments Aug 2021

We thank our Guild and Industry partners for their ongoing work on this, and we are now considering making our Group name; Australian Screen Industry Guilds and Associations.

September means that Accreditation applications are now open, so please contact me, or your Branch President to apply for Accreditation. Applications close on September 30.

Thinking of applying? Don’t hold back!
It is time to start compiling your submission. First up, check your membership status prior to applying to ensure you are eligible.
That means you are required to have at least 8 years working as a professional cinematographer, including the last 3 years as a full member (previously Cinematographer) member of the ACS and remained financial throughout.

Almost there…Please read the information on the links below

All the very best to all who apply to use the letters ACS after their name this year


"I am a rarity," says operations specialist Tamara Penniket, who works for ABC News in Canberra. 

"I am the only female camera operator in Parliament House.

"I was the first woman in 17 years to work in the role in a full-time capacity for the ABC and, in the history of the Australian Press Gallery, only a small number of women have worked as camera operators across all networks."
