The BEST OF CREW Award is on again, too!

In 2012, the Victorian Branch of the Australian Cinematographers Society established the inaugural "Best of Crew" Award, to honour a crew member who has excelled "above and beyond the call of duty" in supporting the DOP on a production to achieve outstanding work. We are running this award again this year.

The winner will be notified after the judging is completed ahead of the Awards. He or she will be given two free tickets to the 2013 Victorian/Tasmanian State Awards for Cinematography to be held at 7pm Saturday, November 23rd at the ANZ Pavilion, The Arts Centre, Melbourne. They will be presented with the "Best Of Crew" Certificate at the Awards and given a one year's free membership to the Australian Cinematographers Society, Victorian or Tasmanian Branch.

The ACS Victoria Branch Executive invites all Accredited or Full Member DOP's to nominate someone from their crew, such as 1st AC's, 2nd AC's, Data Wranglers, DITs, Colourists, Gaffers or Grips who they believe has played a very significant role in achieving the high quality of the cinematography on a particular production.

The DOP should explain why they feel the candidate is worthy of the Best Of Crew Award. The description should outline how the crew member excelled and why it was they impressed the DOP in such a way. This written submission is what the judging panel will read to achieve their decision of the winner.

Unsuccessful submissions will remain anonymous and confidential. No previous submissions may be entered again unless the production has gone into another year. However, the same candidate may be submitted again if it is on a different production.

Please email the Victorian President with your written submission and be sure to include the following:
Name of DOP:
Name and role of Candidate:
Name of Production:
Date of Production:
Reasons why they are Best Of Crew:

Please be sure to write "BOC Submission_(his/her name), on your email Subject Line.
