Sci-Tech Applications for 2010 Academy Awards Due July 16

Category: News
Beverly Hills, Calif. — The submission deadline for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ 2010 Scientific and Technical Achievement Awards is Friday, July 16. A completed entry form must be submitted to the Academy online by 5 pm PT.


In May, the Academy mailed more than 850 “call for entries” letters to individuals and companies around the world specializing in motion picture science and technology.

“The Scientific and Technical Awards Committee casts a wide net when looking for achievements to consider for Academy Award recognition,” explained awards administration director Rich Miller. “The achievement can be a device or a discovery, a formula or a method, but it must demonstrate a proven record of contributing significant value to the process of making motion pictures.”

The committee, which is composed of film industry engineers, scientists and craftspeople, will evaluate all submissions before making recommendations to the Academy’s Board of Governors for award consideration.

The Academy recognizes scientific and technical achievement on three levels: Technical Achievement Award (a certificate), Scientific and Engineering Award (a plaque) and the Academy Award of Merit (an Oscar statuette).

The 2010 Scientific and Technical Awards Presentation will be held on Saturday, February 12, 2011, at the Beverly Wilshire hotel in Beverly Hills.
