2016 HPA AWARDS ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE and JUDGES AWARD FOR CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION CALL FOR ENTRIES OPENS 6 April 2016
The HPA Awards Committee has announced the submission dates for two important special awards: Engineering Excellence and Creativity & Innovation. Submissions will be accepted from 6 APRIL 2016 to 20 May 2016.
The HPA Engineering Excellence Award is recognized as one of the most important technology honors in the industry, spotlighting companies and individuals who draw upon technical and creative ingenuity to develop breakthrough technologies. Submissions for this peer judged award may include products or processes, and must represent a step forward for its industry beneficiaries. Presentations to peer judging panels will be announced soon, and will take place over the summer. Past winners have included Dolby, Canon, NVIDIA, MACOM, The Foundry, Sony Pictures Imageworks, Lightcraft, and Telestream.
The HPA Judges Award for Creativity and Innovation seeks to recognize companies and individuals that have demonstrated excellence in Production through Exhibition, whether that be in creative storytelling and/or technical innovation. The key criterion is whether the entrant demonstrates – through creativity or the use of new approaches, tools, workflows or ideas – a notable step from a technical, creative or efficiency perspective. Submissions for the award can include content such as a unique movie, television program or commercial; a workflow, proprietary technical development, hardware or software toolset, or a creative approach that is not eligible for consideration in other HPA Award categories. A blue ribbon panel determines the award’s winners. Past winners of the Judge’s Award have included ESPN Digital Center 2, DigitalFiIm Tree, the American Society of Cinematographers: Color Decision List (ASC CDL,) Testronic Lab and EFILM among others.
