Message from the President

Greetings members, sponsors and friends,

I'm also pleased to advise that this year our ACS Major National sponsor FUJINON FUJIFILM have come on board to support the Drew Llewelyn ACS Scholarship by offering as a special award to the recipient a FUJIFILM X-T3 body with an MKX18-55mm T2.9 lens. A truly fantastic piece of kit that will be of enormous benefit to the winner of the Scholarship. Our sincere thanks to Frank Bite General Manager, Electronic Imaging and Marc van Agten who has been an ACS stalwart for many, many years. Their generosity and continued support of the Society and our members is greatly appreciated.

Furthermore,
The JOHN LEAKE OAM ACS EMERGING CINEMATOGRAPHER AWARD IS ALSO OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS.
The Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS) created the John Leake OAM ACS Emerging Cinematographer Award in 2010 in honour of ACS co- founder and industry icon, John Leake OAM ACS (1927-2009). John began his cinematographic career as a 15-year-old with Movietone News in 1944 before moving on to Supreme Sound Studios. He served as both NSW President and Federal President of the ACS and was the Society’s official Historian until his passing.
The Award provides a cash prize of $2,400 to an Emerging cinematographer who is either currently studying cinematography at a tertiary institution, or working in the film industry, and is a current member of the ACS. The prize can be used for any educational, training, or professional work that will further their skills and career.

According to ACS National President Ron Johanson OAM ACS, “This incentive has been a total success, fostering young cinematographers in the pursuit of their career goals”

Dale Alexander Bremner, recipient of the NFSA-ACS John Leake OAM ACS Award in 2013, said: “Receiving this Award has given me authentic confidence, the foundation that drives all aspects of your life. Swimming in this Olympic-sized pool of talented Australian cinematographers, one needs all the drive they can find.”

The 2019 recipient will be announced at the ACS National Awards for Cinematography in Melbourne on Saturday 18th May.

The previous recipients have been:
2010 - Kirsty Stark SA
2011 - Edward Goldner VIC
2012 - Jimmy Ennett ACT
2013 - Dale Alexander Bremner NSW
2014 - Thom Neal NT
2015 - Josh Farmelo VIC
2016 - Simon J. Walsh VIC
2017 - Mark Kenfield VIC
