Entries open from 1 May – 31 July to colourists on any grading platform

The FilmLight Colour Awards return for the fourth year in 2024 with an additional new category dedicated to rising talent. The awards, which will once again be presented at EnergaCAMERIMAGE in November, are independently judged by a panel of prominent creatives, cinematographers and colourists. 

New for 2024, the ‘Emerging Talent’ award will recognise and celebrate the work of young colourists (age 18-35) who have worked on a commercial or music video project aired between 1 September 2023 and 30 September 2024.

“The next generation of colourists is critical to the future of our industry,” says Jacqui Loran, co-director at FilmLight. “We have introduced this award to help support and encourage these emerging young talents – shining a light on their work and helping them to form a path into the industry.”

The new category sits alongside the existing five: theatrical feature; television series/episodic; commercial; music video; and Spotlight, which recognises colourists who have contributed to the creative impact of a low budget feature.

The awards are lead and organised by FilmLight, in conjunction with EnergaCAMERIMAGE. “In 2021 we welcomed the FilmLight Colour Awards into the EnergaCAMERIMAGE Film Festival programme and we have enjoyed watching the success of the awards and the partnership grow year-on-year,” says Marek Žydowicz, EnergaCAMERIMAGE Founder and Director. “We continue to receive positive feedback about our joint efforts to shine a light on the work of the colourist and their invaluable collaboration with the cinematographer. We can’t wait to do it again this year.”

For 2024, FilmLight also welcomes four new supporting partners: ShotDeck (fully-searchable cinematic image library), AMC (Mexican Society of Cinematographers), BVK (German Society of Cinematographers) and ISC (Indian Society of Cinematographers). They join the growing list of long-standing supporters, including: AFC (French Society of Cinematographers), ASC (American Society of Cinematographers), BSC (British Society of Cinematographers), CNSC (Chinese Society of Cinematographers), CSI (Colorist Society International) and more. 

You can watch highlights from 2023 in the 2024 teaser video, here. Colourists, production companies and facilities are invited to put forward their nominations when entries open on 1 May 2024, with a final deadline for submissions on 31 July 2024.
