Call for Entries: AACTA: Byron Kennedy Award

AACTA is now calling for recommendations for the Byron Kennedy Award, which celebrates outstanding creative enterprise within the screen industry.

The Award, which honours Dr George Miller’s original filmmaking partner and Mad Max co-creator Byron Kennedy, is given to an individual or organisation whose work embodies innovation and the relentless pursuit of excellence.

Previous recipients have included cutting edge digital production studio Animal Logic, director Jane Campion, multidisciplinary filmmaker Ivan Sen, cinematographer Adam Arkapaw, virtual reality filmmaker Lynette Walworth, filmmakers Martin Butler and Bentley Dean and, most recently, filmmaker and philanthropist Ian Darling AO.

Presented by Kennedy Miller Mitchell in association with AACTA and selected by an appointed jury, the Byron Kennedy Award includes a cash prize of $10,000.

The next Byron Kennedy Award will be presented at the 2024 AACTA Awards.

Recommendations Close October 20.
