There have been three major changes in the terms and regulations of our Festival!

Firstly, from the 29th edition of EnergaCAMERIMAGE, students etudes can be submitted only by film and art schools official representatives. For more information, who can be the school’s representative, please contact Kasjana Wiśniewska at Secondly, First Look – TV Pilots Competition has been transformed into TV Series Competition. It means that apart from TV pilots (first episodes of first seasons), the 29th edition of EnergaCAMERIMAGE Festival is open for submissions for the first episodes of subsequent seasons! Last, but not least – from now on, EnergaCAMERIMAGE would like to acknowledge the influence that directors indisputably have on the visual side of competing films. That’s why we will start honoring directors of winning titles with special CAMERIMAGE Statuette awards.

Please note that EnergaCAMERIMAGE Festival is an ACADEMY AWARD qualifying festival in the Documentary Short Subject category. This means that the winners of the Golden Frog in Documentary Shorts Competition will qualify for consideration in the Documentary Short Subject category of the Annual ACADEMY AWARDS without the standard theatrical run, provided the film otherwise complies with the Academy rules.

EnergaCAMERIMAGE Festival has also been named a STUDENT ACADEMY AWARD qualifying festival which means that all films nominated in the Student Etudes Competition at EnergaCAMERIMAGE will qualify for consideration of the Student Academy Awards provided the filmmakers will otherwise comply with the Academy Rules, including being a full-time student of an eligible film school and making the film as a part of the school work.

Join the selection process and see you at EnergaCAMERIMAGE 2021!
