Thinking of Applying for ACS Accreditation ?
If you are thinking of applying for ACS Accreditation this year please be aware that the window for 2023 opens for three weeks only on September 1 and closes September 21.

May I take this opportunity to encourage you to start thinking about getting your submission together and passing it by your Accredited President for advice well before then, preferably in July or August. This process helps minimise the Assessment panel having to look at submissions that are "not up to scratch". Please don't leave it to the last minute as it's a busy time of the ACS year.

Accreditation assessments are not a mystery. The process involves a panel of ten ACS Accredited cinematographers, who work across as many genres as possible, gathered together (COVID willing) to assess the work. The submitted works of the applying cinematographers are screened and assessed before voting on each submission by secret ballot. To gain Accreditation a minimum of 8 of the panel of 10 must vote in the positive. It's tough but if the work is considered a high enough standard you should get through.

It's best you check out the ACS Accreditation page on our website so you make sure you qualify to apply and read the guidelines.
