Congratulations to the winner of the 2017 ACE Student Editing Competition!
Tommy Wakefield ~ University of North Carolina, School of the Arts
The Student Editing Competition is now closed. The next competition will begin in the fall, please check back for dates.
Students of film or editing may enter the ACE Student Editing Competition once a year. Applicants must provide the name of the school or university where they are studying and the name of a professor or instructor on the application. Upon payment of the entry fee, the applicants are directed to the webpage with the application form.
The form is received and reviewed and those students whose applications are approved will be sent an invitation to enter the competition. ~
The competing students are sent a set of video dailies from a television show in November. Each student edits the video entry and returns it to ACE by in early January each year. The entries are judged by a panel of professional film editors and three finalists are selected and announced in January. ~
The three finalists are guests at the annual ACE Eddie Awards in February. The winner receives a special Student Award and publicity in the Hollywood trade papers and each finalist receives a plaque. (ACE does not pay transportation or hotel expenses for out-of-town students.)
Please Note: The dailies supplied are for this student competition only and are NOT to be duplicated or copied or used for classroom study, projects or any other outside use. Any infringement upon this use may result in litigation.
