47th Student Academy Awards | June 1st Deadline
May 27, 2020
The 47th annual Student Academy Awards competition is accepting submissions and the June 1 deadline is just a couple of days away.
We have examined the situation around the Covid-19 crisis and based on the feedback we have received we have determined that it would not be effective to move our deadline date for this year. Be assured, per our rules, any student who finishes their film after June 1 will still be eligible for next year’s SAAs (if they meet all of the other eligibility criteria). Students will not be penalized because they couldn’t finish their film in time due to restrictions instituted to fight the pandemic.
For those students who will have a finished film in time for the June 1 deadline, we would like your help in making sure they are aware of the approaching deadline. Downloadable graphics are included at the bottom of this email for e-blasting to students who might have qualifying films or for posting on your school’s digital platform should you have one. If you have students from last year who finished their films after June 1, 2019 they too might be eligible for this year’s competition. Please alert them, if you can, to the fact that they might be eligible to submit their film.
What’s in it for the students?
· No entry fee
· Only Academy members view the films
· Medal winners qualify for Oscar consideration
· Industry spotlight
· Students join the ranks of Spike Lee, Cary Fukunaga, Pete Docter, Patricia Riggen and Patricia Cardoso as Student Academy Award winners.
The competition rules, and a link to the online submission portal are available at www.oscars.org/saa.
Should you have any further questions, please contact the team at email@example.com. We look forward to receiving your students’ films.
