With almost no barriers to entry and all the great creative I have seen on TV and Cinema in the past six months, I am expecting a substantial reaction to the call to entry. ”
Awards organiser, Val Morgan is also expecting a strong response to the call for entries. Daniel Hill, Managing Director commented: “The ACES highlights the exceptional talent we have in Australia, showcasing outstanding creative on the biggest and best screen of all – the cinema screen. Now in its sixth run, the caliber of work entered is expected to hit a new benchmark”
Entries for the ACES close 17th September 2014, the awards ceremony takes place in early October.
