ASE Ellie Awards 2024

Entries to the ASE Ellie Awards for 2024 and applications for Accreditation are now open. The Ellie Awards are the only awards dedicated to and judged by the best Editors and their Post Practitioners in their fields. 

We celebrate Editing across a broad range of genres from Feature Films, Documentaries, and Commercials. We recognise the best Editors in their fields with Accreditation and at the same time champion those who are just beginning with the Emerging Editor. We are excited to be expanding our scope to include Assistants, Post Supervisors, VFX editors, Online Editors and Colour Graders in our brand new Technical Excellence Award. This new award shines a spotlight on the incredible practitioners who make these impressive productions possible.

We want to see innovative workflows and techniques that showcase the best our industry has to offer. It could be a new way to simplify a time intensive task, or it could be a large and complex production with many moving parts.

The ASE holds accreditation as a signifier that an Editor brings a high level of craft and creativity to the role. Accredited Editors are more than just competent at their job, they are able to elevate their work above the expected. They are active members of the community and act as ambassadors for the profession.
Accredited Editors have the honour of applying the letters ASE after their name when it appears in credits, websites, and communications.
