The Australian Cinematographers Society Awards for Cinematography are one of the core functions of the ACS and a highlight on the ACS calendar.

The ACS awards system is a National system, with awards representing members from all States and Territories. They are held annually in October / November and are normally divided into four regions. Entrants can only submit entries into the State & Territory branch awards of which they are a financial member. Entries open August 1 and close on August 25.

2019 ACS State and Territory Gold winners will progress through to the 2020 ACS National Awards for Cinematography.

In each of the State and Territory Awards, up to three Gold, two Silver and/or one Bronze award may be presented in each category (*excluding CineKids and Student) at the discretion of the judging panel. The judging panel may choose not to give awards in any category where the entries received are considered not to be of a high enough standard.

*(CineKids are eligible for one Gold and one Encouragement Award. Students are eligible for one Gold, one Silver and one Bronze Award)

Entry is open to all current financial members of the Society. Non-members may enter the Awards, provided the entrant joins the society and pays membership fees prior to their entry being accepted for judging.

Entries are accepted from August, with online entry forms on the ACS website. Entries must have been completed within two years of the Awards' date.

A panel of 5 ACS Accredited members judge in each host state and at least two of the panel members are not from the host state.

ACS member Gold winners from each State and Territory Awards automatically progress to the National Awards for Cinematography, which are held generally in April/May the following year in a capital city (on a rotational basis).
