About the ACS National Awards for Cinematography
The National Awards for Cinematography are held annually in May, on a rotational basis between Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne.
In 2012 the National Awards were held on Saturday 5 May at the Manly Pacific Hotel, in Sydney hosted by the NSW ACS branch.
The black tie gala is the premier event on the ACS calendar and was an opportunity to celebrate the art of cinematography in Australia.
Entries for the National Awards are automatically entered from the Gold winners from the individual State & Territory Awards, held in November the preceding year. Direct entry is not available into the National Awards. Only current financial members of the Society are eligible to enter into the State & Territory awards.
The Golden Tripod is the highest award in each category with runners up receiving an Award of Distinction. Only one Golden Tripod can be awarded in each category.
All the Golden Tripod Winners are then reconsidered to determine the winner of the Milli Award for ACS Australian Cinematographer of the Year.
