Planning for the exciting new NZCS Awards is well under way. Based on the highly successful ACS awards in Australia, the NZCS Awards will celebrate, honour, and encourage world-class cinematography in New Zealand.
You should mark two dates in your calendar right now:
- 15 August 2016 - the closing date for entries.
- 15 October 2016 - NZCS Awards black tie dinner to be held in the Grand Tea Room of the Heritage Hotel in Auckland.
“We will be celebrating the work of New Zealand cinematographers on high profile productions but equally we will be bringing to light those quiet achievers whose credits are often in the background, but who are producing high quality images in television, or for the web,” says Dave Cameron ACS, NZCS Awards chair.
“Each award is made independently on merit so there could be more than one gold award in each category. This encourages wide participation gives a low budget production the same chance for a gold award as a big budget production.”
He says right now we are working to bring sponsors on board, and are delighted at the response from key players in the industry.
