The Cinema Audio Society is accepting applications for the inaugural CAS Student Recognition Award. The award comes with a $2,500 grant and is intended to encourage students’ interest in production or post-production sound mixing, and to recognize individual students with exceptional demonstrated passion for the field.

Eligibility for the CAS Student Recognition Award is open to any student enrolled in a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree program at an accredited college or university. Students may be pursuing any major (many current CAS members majored in music, psychology, English, engineering and other fields) but should have a demonstrated interest and some experience in production or post-production sound for film and television.

“One of our founding principles is to foster the next generation of sound mixers and the realization of this award has been a longtime personal goal of mine as a member and an officer of the CAS, " says CAS President, David Fluhr. "How fitting that as we are celebrating our 50th year, we establish this recognition, and we’re delighted that a generous anonymous donor has made it possible to provide the cash stipend that will accompany it.”

The selection criteria will focus on the student’s short essays in response to application questions, along with professor’s recommendation letter.

Five finalists will be selected to participate in video chat interviews with members of the CAS selection committee. The finalists will be invited to attend the 2015 awards dinner, on February 14, 2015, as guests of CAS (travel expenses are not included), where the Student Recognition Award recipient will be announced.

Visit the CAS Website for the complete application guidelines and details for applying.
