Sci-Tech Applications for 2006 Academy Awards® Due August 1


July 25, 2006 - Beverly Hills, CA — To be considered for a 2006 scientific and technical achievement award in film, applicants must submit a completed entry form to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences by the Tuesday, August 1 filing deadline.

In late May, the Academy mailed more than 850 letters and entry forms to individuals and companies around the world specializing in motion picture science and technology.

“The Scientific and Technical Awards Committee casts a wide net when looking for achievements to consider for Academy Award® recognition,” explained Awards Administration Director Rich Miller. “The achievement can be a device or a discovery, a formula or a method, but it must demonstrate a proven record of contributing significant value to the process of making motion pictures.”

The committee, which is composed of film industry engineers, scientists and craftspeople, will evaluate all submissions before making recommendations to the Academy’s Board of Governors for award consideration.

The Academy recognizes scientific and technical achievement on three levels: Technical Achievement Award (a certificate), Scientific and Engineering Award (a plaque) and the Academy Award of Merit (an Oscar® statuette).

The 2006 Scientific and Technical Awards Presentation will be held on Saturday, February 10, 2007, at the Regent Beverly Wilshire.

Individuals and companies that did not receive the initial mailing and want to make a submission can download an application packet or apply online at
