Women In Film Kodak Vision Award Calls for Entries
Women in Film (WIF) has opened the nomination process for the Kodak Vision Award for cinematography. The award will be presented to an outstanding woman cinematographer based on her body of work in both feature film and/or television. The winner will be honored at the WIF Crystal/Lucy Awards ceremony in June 2004. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 1, 2004.
"Cinematographers are an important part of collaborative process," says WIF president Iris Grossman. "We believe it is important to encourage diversity by recognizing the achievements of talented female cinematographers. An independent blue ribbon panel consisting of cinematographers and other industry professionals will select the winner. In addition to looking at their body of work, the panel will also consider each nominee's commitment to mentoring and assisting other women who are striving to establish careers as cinematographers and camera crewmembers."
Nominations should include a biography, a list of credits, a letter addressing activities that support, encourage and mentor other woman, qualifications, and a current reel (Beta, SP, 3/4, DVD or VHS). Individuals may recommend themselves and/or others.
Sponsored by Kodak since 1996, former Vision Award recipients include such notable cinematographers as Ellen Kuras, ASC, Nancy Schreiber, ASC, Sandi Sissel, ASC, Lisa Rinzler, Amy Vincent, ASC, Roxanne DiSanto, Carolyn Chen, and Pauline Heaton, CSC.
