NAB Launches ICE Production and Post Production Awards
Washington, DC (November 5, 2003)–The National Association of Broadcasters, in cooperation with Future Media Concepts (FMC), announced they are launching the NAB Individual Creative Excellence (ICE) Awards to recognize those who stretch creativity and craft outstanding works in production and post-production. Part of the new Post|Production World Conference, the awards will be announced at NAB2004 in Las Vegas April 17-22.
“The attendees who come to our convention every year are tops in their field, producing cutting-edge digital art for a variety of audiences,” said NAB vice president, science & technology John Marino. “Joining with FMC to honor these leaders for their exceptional work is a natural fit for the convention–the world’s largest gathering place for video production professionals.”
Editors, graphic artists, sound designers, web designers and videographers from any entity that uses the medium of digital art to produce exceptional work are eligible to enter. The entry fee is $125 for the first piece of work submitted, and $100 for each additional piece of work or for consideration of the piece in additional categories.
Students with valid student identification may submit their entry for the Student Category for a $35 fee. The deadline for entries is March 5, 2004.
Five finalists and then one winner in six specific crafts will be announced at an awards ceremony to be held during NAB 2004. The crafts are: editing, graphics and animation, audio production and sound design, producing and directing, interactive design and videography, and photography. Each craft is further classified into the broadcast, non-broadcast or student industries, and then into additional specific genres.
