The Australian Screen Editors Guild is dedicated to the pursuit and recognition of excellence in Screen Editing and all forms of motion picture post production.




The ASE is introducing the Technical Excellence Award to acknowledge the outstanding work of people in the Editorial Department such as Assistants, Post Supervisors, VFX editors, Online Editors and Colour Graders.

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 Technical Excellence Award is considered to be of equal standing to our other Editing awards. The nominees will be announced alongside our other categories and the winning application will receive the same trophy.

The nominees of this award will be encouraged to present their workflows at the inaugural ASE “Cutting It” Editing festival that will occur on the same day as the Ellies.

It is hoped that by celebrating and highlighting the work of our talented and dedicated practitioners, we can foster greater collaboration and keep our membership updated on the latest industry practices.
