CineCom Communication Awards Open For SubmissionsNew CineCom Awards to be held in conjunction with Cinequest (September 24, 2004)
The call for entries is out for the first CineCom Awards beginning today at the CineComfestival.com web site. The CineCom Awards for visual communication will award excellence by media professionals in Industrial Productions, Business Theater, Home/Consumer Productions, Commercials, Web Based Productions and other areas.
CineCom, in its first year, will accept submissions through its CineComfestival.com web site and will announce the winners in March 2005. The winners will be recognized as part of the Annual Cinequest International Film Festival, in San Jose, California.
?These awards will inspire, recognize and reward creativity in the visual arts, stated Barb Vella, Executive Director of CineCom. ?Through CineCom we want to recognize maverick media professionals throughout the United States and abroad.
The San Francisco Bay Area used to have a communications awards program in the 90s and once it ended media professionals in the area were no longer recognized by their peers. It is through CineCom that attention to media production professionals from the entire United States and abroad will return to the Bay Area
The charter of CineCom is to recognize those maverick media professionals and clients who have created and produced moving images that tell a commercial or business-oriented story. That is, electronic media that promotes or sells a product, service or idea.
What defines a maverick? Well, the dictionary defines a maverick as somebody who holds independent views and refuses to confirm to the accepted or orthodox thinking on a subject. To that we would add that a maverick idea shows breakthrough thinking in some way, be it the way it was produced, the look of the production, the idea it is promoting, or some other tangible element.
In this way, the highest awards of the CineCom event will recognize those productions that show the most innovative creative thinking in order to break through the clutter and noise in the marketplace.
