ASC Calls For Entries In Annual TV Competition

Two television categories include Episodic Television and Movie/Miniseries/Pilot (September 14, 2005)

The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) has issued a call for entries in two television categories for the 20th Annual ASC Outstanding Achievement Awards competition.

The categories are Episodic Television and Movie/Miniseries/Pilot.

Winners will be announced at the ASC Outstanding Achievement Awards gala at the Century Plaza Hotel on February 26, 2006.

"This competition is a celebration of a storytelling medium that reaches into virtually every home," says Russ Alsobrook, ASC, chairman of the ASC Awards Committee. He notes that the Outstanding Achievement Awards is the only competition for cinematographers where the nominees and winners are selected solely by their peers.

For eligibility in the television categories, programs must air for the first time in 2005. The deadline for submissions is January 3, 2006, by noon.

About the ASC
ASC traces its roots to 1913 when a handful of cinematographers organized camera clubs in New York and Los Angeles, which met informally for the purpose of sharing ideas about technical and creative issues. Crudo points out that most of the jobs required to produce films existed in the theatre before there were movies. Cinematography was one of the few exceptions to that rule. The first generation of cinematographers was literally inventing a new visual language as a form of expression. Sixteen members of the two camera clubs organized the ASC in December of 1918. The organization was chartered in California on January 9, 1919. From the beginning, ASC membership has been by invitation based on the individual's body of narrative film work. Some 275 cinematographers with national roots in approximately 20 countries are members of ASC today. There are also 140 associate members from various allied sectors of the industry.
