Hollywood Post Alliance(r) Accepting Entries for The Judges Award for Creativity and Innovation

Award for Creativity and Innovation Set for HPA Awards

(Los Angeles, CA) Entries are being accepted for the HPA Judges Award for Creativity and Innovation in Post Production. The Creativity and Innovation Award was conceived to recognize a significant contribution to the intensely creative, technology-fueled and challenging environment that content creators, post production facilities, experts and manufacturers operate in. This award presents the post production community with an opportunity to award a unique project, workflow, proprietary technical development, hardware or software toolset, or creative approach or achievement.

The Creativity and Innovation Award shines a spotlight on companies and individuals who have demonstrated excellence in the application of innovation to the post production process or to the post production industry through the use of new approaches, tools, workflows and ideas that help enhance the post production process from a technical, creative or efficiency perspective. Leon Silverman, president of the

Hollywood Post Alliance

comments, “The Creativity and Innovation Award offers an opportunity to reward innovative contributions and to honor individuals and companies that continue to advance post production. Recognizing new approaches, tools, workflows and ideas that enhance post production from the technical, creative or efficiency perspective is a key to HPA’s mission of building community and awareness for the increasingly important and vital role that post production plays in the content creation process.”

The submission period for The Judges Award for Creativity and Innovation in Post Production is June 28, 2010 – July 19, 2010 and will be presented at the HPA Awards in November in Los Angeles, CA.

This Award will be judged by a jury of industry peers which will review submissions and select an honoree(s). The Creativity and Innovation Award is a discretionary honor that does not have to be given every year and will only be awarded to those projects deemed to show excellence in creative and innovative thinking or achievement.

Other prestigious honors presented at the
