In the UK the FOCAL (Federation of Commercial Audio-visual Libraries) International Awards 2012 has extended its deadline for submissions from December 1st to December 12th at 18.00.
FOCAL is calling for entries for its ninth annual FOCAL International Awards, in association with AP Archive. These Awards celebrate the best use of footage material in a variety of genres, and also recognise the researchers, technicians and producers that access, maintain and use this precious resource. Julie Lewis, General Manager, FOCAL International, said, “The Awards have become an unmissable event in the world of footage. They offer the chance to raise entrants’ profiles amongst the biggest names in the business around the world and to shine a spotlight on the great work being done, both on screen and behind the scenes.” The award ceremony will be held on 2 May 2012 at the Lancaster London Hotel in London.
