37th Student Academy Awards Entrants have been announced. The Student Academy Awards 2010 has a “record 61 entries from 36 countries, along with 497 entries from students representing 122 U.S. colleges and universities, are in competition for the 2010 Student Academy Awards. This year’s pool of submissions includes a first-ever entry from Nigeria.” I do not believe that I have seen a entry in awards but since “the program’s inception, Student Academy Award winners have gone on to earn 40 Oscar nominations and won 7 Academy Awards.” So maybe I have. The Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences “established the Student Academy Awards in 1972 to support and encourage excellence in filmmaking at the collegiate level. Gold, Silver and Bronze Medal awards and corresponding cash prizes may be presented in each of four categories: Animation, Narrative, Documentary and Alternative. Additionally, one film is selected each year to receive the Honorary Foreign Film award.” The entire list of schools and countries participating this year can be found here. The official ceremony will be held on June 12, 2010. The public is able to attend but advance ticket purchases (which can be purchased starting on April 28, 2010) are necessary. Tickets can be purchased here, by mail, and at the box office of the Academy.
