(Los Angeles, CA)
- the trade association for the post production community - has announced that
will sponsor its HPA Engineering Excellence Award again this year, renewing its commitment to the organization's HPA Awards and its Engineering honors. The Awards were launched in 2006 to foster awareness of post production, promote creative and technical excellence, recognize the achievements of post production talent and build involvement in the Hollywood Post Alliance. The HPA Awards are the standard by which creative and technical excellence in the art, science and craft of post production are measured. The Engineering Excellence Award is a coveted honor, long recognized by the technical and post production community as a gold standard of accomplishment. The Engineering honors were developed to showcase and reward inventors, manufacturers, vendors and/or peer post production companies for their outstanding product or technology application offerings. Chris Brown, EVP Conventions & Business Operations of NAB announced the ongoing affiliation. "We value highly our commitment to the Hollywood Post Alliance and see the HPA as a crucial cornerstone in the industry. The Engineering Excellence Award is one of the most esteemed in the post industry, and we are proud to sponsor something that recognizes the innovative technology and tools that are inspiring the incredible work of our creative community. We look forward to the evolution of our partnership. Leon Silverman, President of the HPA, commented, "We are proud that we have again earned the support of NAB Show, and are honored that we will continue our collaboration with them for this Award. The HPA Engineering Excellence Award speaks to the significance that technology and tools play for our creative community. To have NAB Show sponsor and present this award is significant. This partnership between NAB Show and HPA brings great focus on those companies and individuals who present and create our industry's best work, which we celebrate each year at the HPA Awards."
