Slow Results from AWARDS

I owe everyone an apology, the AWARDS committee (made up of me), has been very slow to release the results of the 2011 AWARDS.

Thanks to Al Tompkins and his book “Aim for the Heart” for sponsoring the AWARDS and allowing us to send a beautiful trophy to the 2011 b-roller of the YEAR. Unfortunately, due to lack of full sponsorship, we won’t have trophies for the other awards and categories. Hopefully with a larger “committee” next year, we can rally up more sponsorship and bring back the beautiful trophies.

We’re (er, I’m ) working on pinpointing the BEST of and b-roller of the YEAR winners as we speak.

In the meantime, here are the category results. We had an exciting tie in the In Depth category – so the voting was tough.

Congratulations to all the winners.

Click on the individual categories to see the clips in order of their scores.

Please note: In selecting First, Second and Third Place for a particular category, only the top scoring clip from an individual was considered. Some individual photographers had two clips in the top three of a category, and in those situations, the next highest clip from a different photographer was selected.

    This is an excellent opportunity for a company like Anton Bauer, B&H or Porta Brace to step up and support all of us here at that faithfully support them.
    C’mon become a hero and earn our continued loyalty.
    Maybe Kevin could post the Trophy links and we could buy them individually like the Telly’s.

    How sad is that?

    Any verdict yet? I think we are all pretty anxious to see. Collett and I were about to beat each other up this weekend… lol. Not really…
