FOCAL International, the international Federation of Commercial Audio-visual Libraries, is calling for entries for its ninth annual FOCAL International Awards, in association with AP Archive. The Awards celebrate the best use of footage material in a variety of genres, and also recognises the researchers, technicians and producers that access, maintain and use this precious resource.
The deadline for entries is 1 December 2011, while the glittering award ceremony will be held on 2 May 2012 at the Lancaster London Hotel in London.

They offer the chance to raise entrants’ profiles amongst the biggest names in the business around the world and to shine a spotlight on the great work being done, both on screen and behind the scenes.”
