UK shooters now have a competition of their own to enter, thanks to the BJP in association with Canon. The new award is open to all kinds of HD-DSLR films from any genre, from documentary through to commercial promos. On the judging panel are commercial director Nicholas Barker; Dominique Green, managing director of the charity PhotoVoice; and portrait photographer Brian Griffin.
According to the BJP website:
The judges will be looking in particular for films that make creative use of the new technology, or use it to tell stories that otherwise would have been too costly, or in which the camera would have been too intrusive, to deliver professional standard films.
Entrants should also demonstrate a good understanding of some or all of the following attributes: structure and narrative development, professional requirements for sound and editing, and evident technical ability. But above all, they are looking for credible and engaging films that can hold an audience for the length of the film.
The grand prize is a Canon 1DmkIV which will be awarded at a ceremony in London this December.
