Dear colleagues and friends,
On behalf of the FIAT/IFTA Awards Jury let me hereby remind you, archivists, producers, filmmakers, video artists, broadcasters and industry representatives to submit your archive-based projects for this year’s FIAT/IFTA Archive Achievement Awards.
Please note that the deadline has been extended to Friday May 5th 2017.
The three categories are:
1. Best Use of Archive:
The Award for the Best Use of Archive is given to an exceptional audiovisual production that uses archive footage in an outstanding manner which moves, surprises, entertains or educates a demanding audience.
2. Most Innovative Use of Archive:
The Award for the Most Innovative Use of Archive is given to an exceptional project that pushes the boundaries in using audiovisual archive in the fields of design, user-experience, funding and production.
3. Best Archive Preservation Project:
The Award for the Best Archive Preservation Project is given to a project that will inspire the audiovisual archiving community as an outstanding example of preserving archive footage.
The 3 winners will be honored with the prestigious FIAT/IFTA Cube at the Awards Ceremony during the 2017 FIAT/IFTA World Conference in Mexico and will win a free registration to the 2018 FIAT/IFTA World Conference.
Please spread the word to interested parties in your organization and to other FIAT/IFTA members in your country and encourage them to take part.
