Oscar calls for tech entrants

Achievements considered if merit proven through use, Miller sez

It’s Oscar time again.

After a two-month, post-Oscar kudocast hiatus, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences officially kicked off the 73rd annual Academy Awards race Wednesday, calling for scientific and technological achievers.

Entry forms have been mailed globally to more than 800 companies and individuals in the film-related scientific community.

Awards recognize those who have made technological advances that have proved significant to the industry in the production of motion pictures.

“Achievements are considered only if they have proved their exceptional merit through successful use,” awards administration director Richard Miller said.

Candidates will be evaluated by subcommittees of engineers, scientists and craftsmen, who will appoint a crop of top applicants to the Academy’s board of governors for Oscar consideration.

Submissions deadline is Aug. 1. For more information and applications, call (310) 247-3000, ext. 129, or visit http://www.oscars.org.
