The film and TV industry still has many roles where women are underrepresented, and that is particularly stark in post production. WFTV is delighted to bring back this WFTV award which spotlights new female talent in post production and this year we are in partnership with Viacom International Studios. The Elouise Carden Rising Star Award for Post Production is an award which recognises outstanding work by an early career woman working in post production.
Nominees are required to have worked in the industry for up to five years and have made a real impact on colleagues and/or clients. The award recognises someone who consistently goes above and beyond the expectations of the role and shows a genuine curiosity and passion for post production.
The eligible roles for the award are:
Junior Audio Assistant
Junior Facilities Assistant
Junior Online Editor / Colourist
Junior Post Producer
Junior Technician / Machine Room Assistant
The winner of this award will receive a £2,000 bursary which can be used for training, professional development and equipment to further their career in post. The nominations will be considered by an industry jury, who will decide the winner and will be announced at a special event in July.
Nominations will be closing on Monday 24 April, 2023, 11:00am.
Elouise Carden, who sadly passed away in 2020 was the joint Managing Director and Co-Owner of both Rapid Pictures and Radiant Post Production. Elouise was passionate about nurturing new talent in our industry, and in particular women working in post production. This award is in honour of Elouise and is being launched in partnership with Rapid Pictures and Radiant Post Production.
CEO of WFTV Katie Bailiff said
'We are delighted once again to be honouring Elouise Carden with this post production award which recognises new talent – a subject very close to Elouise’s heart. By spotlighting women at this early stage in their career we hope to encourage more women into the post production pipeline.’
