TECHNICAL ACHIEVEMENT AWARD ANNOUNCEMENT:

It is with regret that our Awards Committee made the decision to defer our award for this year.

This was a difficult decision, and we trust you will understand that due to the current strike-related stress in the industry, combined with the desire to focus our 2024 Awards ceremony on our operators and their achievements during 2023, we felt this was the best for all concerned.

We will welcome you to submit for our award and demo day again in 2024.

If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to email Membership@soc.org

Best regards,
Society of Camera Operators
