ASC Calls TV Entries in Awards Competition
The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) is calling for entries in the two television categories of its annual awards competition.

The deadline for submissions for episodic programming and for the movie/miniseries/pilot category is noon, Nov. 1. The winners will be revealed during the 22nd Annual ASC Outstanding Achievement Awards celebration here in Hollywood Jan. 26, 2008.

“This annual celebration is an opportunity for our members to express their admiration for the artistic achievements of their peers,” said ASC President Daryn Okada. “It is also a forum where we hope to inspire cinematographers around the world to follow their dreams in their pursuit of creative visual storytelling.”

Programs with a U.S. premiere broadcast date between Jan. 1 and Oct. 31, 2007. There are generally five nominees in each category.

“We believe that it is extremely important for peers to judge artistic achievements in cinematography, because it is generally designed to be non-obtrusive and transparent to audiences,” says Russ Alsobrook, ASC, chairman of the organization’s Awards Committee. “Many creative lighting and composition variables augment the actors’ performances and affect the emotional tones of stories.”
