2017 State Awards Entry Opens in 2 Weeks!

It's not long before you'll be able to enter your best recent work into the 2017 SA & WA Awards for Cinematography.

Behind the scenes we have been working hard to create a new website to make entering even easier. This year all entries and payments will only be possible online via our website.

Make sure you familiarise yourself with the Terms and Conditions of entry and select the correct category for your entries.

If you are a fully financial member of the ACS as either a CineKids, Student, Camera Crew (formerly Active), Cinematographer (formerly Full) or Accredited member, then you are eligible to enter the awards. Sorry, but if you are not financial member you cannot enter.

Please note that entry formats have changed dramatically and ProRes files are no longer a preferred entry format. This is due to the difficulty in managing and storing the vast amounts of data that they entail.

Entries will now only be accepted in the following formats:

• Data files: h.264 (x264) codec, within an MP4 or MOV file container if possible, on USB Flash Drive or Portable Hard Drives

• Commercially produced DVD’s. PAL Standard. Australian Region. NO SELF- AUTHORED DISCS WILL BE ACCEPTED.

• Commercially produced BluRay Discs. Australian Region. NO SELF- AUTHORED DISCS WILL BE ACCEPTED.

Read more information via the links below.

Entries are only open from August 1 to close of business on August 18, 2017. Late entries will not be accepted. All the State Awards now have the same opening and closing dates.

Remember to put Saturday October 28 in your diary for the 37th Annual SA & WA Awards for Cinematography which will be held at the iconic Adelaide Oval with pre dinner drinks in the Rick Davies Bar overlooking the oval whilst the formal presentation will be a sit down dinner in the Cathedral Room.

2017 SA AGM in August 14

Just a reminder that our AGM is on Monday night August 14 at the Little Bang Brewery with beer tastings and pizza following the AGM. I hear there will be some other fun things to do on the night too!

There are links below for Corporate members to either download a committee nomination form or alternatively a proxy form if you can't make it on the night.

Please consider carefully the roles if you are interested in nominating for a committee role. The role of a committee member requires time, commitment and responsibility but is a great opportunity to be involved in shaping the future of your ACS.

Only Corporate members may stand or vote at the AGM but all members over 18 are welcome. In the August eNews will will ask all wishing to attend to rsvp as the numbers will be limited.

Corporate members include: Camera Crew, Cinematographer, Accredited, Retired and Life members.

Student, CineKids, Honorary and Associate members are classed as non-corporate members and have no voting rights. Sorry!
