HollywoodNews.com: The International Cinematographers Guild has announced the honorees for its 14th annual Emerging Cinematographers Awards. The eight short subjects and two honorable mentioned films from Guild members will be shown at a special screening at the Directors Guild of America Theater in Los Angeles on September 26.

ICG President Steven Poster said, “Our Emerging Cinematographers Awards are unique in the industry in that they recognize members who have not yet reached the top tier in our guild. They are all aspiring to be or are in the process of moving up to Director of Photography. These awards have always helped past honorees in their careers.
ICG judges from across the country, under the chairmanship of Jim Matlosz, selected the 10 films from some 70 that were submitted.
Honored were Tod Campbell for “The Big Bends;” Cameron Duncan, “Mr Marceau;” Stephanie Dufford honored for “The Fantastic Magnifico” Patrick Jones’ Android Love;” Rodney Lamborn, whose “Meridian,” is the shortest film in the group at two and a half minutes; Jacob Pinger for “The Cycle;” John Snedden, “Brite Eyes; and Brian Udoff, whose 26 minute “Les Mouches” is the longest film to be screened. The total running time for these films is two hours.
In addition, there are two honorable mentions–Tim Bellen, and Aaron Medick, whose films are respectively titled “State of Grace” and “Weequahic.”
