Two Years ago, in March 2020, ICG launched a large unique international project called Colorist Awards. This is the world's first professional awards for colorists’ achievements and creative color grading development in the fields of film, commercial, documentary, music videos and short films industries.
Dolby's involvement is highly important and honorable to this project, as for more than 50 years it has been developing audio and video solutions that make sound and picture clearer, brighter and more saturated. Dolby technologies were appreciated by representatives of the largest film studios, directors, sound engineers and distributors from around the world. The films produced with the use of professional solutions of the company annually become Oscar winners.
“We are delighted to support Independent Colourists Guild (ICG) and their efforts to build and strengthen a global professional colorist community. We hope that the project will make a great contribution to the domestic video production industry. The perfect picture gives viewers a completely new experience and allows content producers to implement their ideas as accurately as possible,” comments Alexey Ugrinovich, CEO of Dolby Russia and the CIS.
“We are very pleased that Dolby has agreed to become an official partner of Colorist Awards. We hope that working with such a world-renowned company, that offers the most innovative and high-quality video solutions, will influence the development of the Guild and the whole community. And Dolby's participation in the Awards will allow us to announce the project on a larger scale and attract the world’s best colorists to participate,” said Alexander Prokhorushkin, CEO and founder of ICG.
The Awards are planned to be held annually, and the Awards ceremony will take place in the spring in different countries. This will emphasize that Colorist Awards is a completely independent and international event. The second Awards ceremony will take place in March 2022 in Moscow.
The selection process of the winners will be completely independent and will include three stages of voting: technical - according to the rules of the Awards; creative - assessment of works by colorists; and the final one - the winners will be chosen by a jury consisting of recognized masters from related creative professions.
