During a presentation ceremony held on October 11 in New York City, American Cinematographer correspondent Iain Marcks won the Eddie Award for Best Single Article at the Folio: Awards luncheon.
Folio: is the trade magazine of record for the publishing industry, recognizing business-to-business, regional, association and consumer publications.
Marcks earned the top honor for his March 2017 cover story on T2: Trainspotting, which documented the camerawork of by ASC member Anthony Dod Mantle.
AC won another trophy for best Full Issue with our January 2017 edition spotlighting Silence, shot by Rodrigo Prieto, ASC, AMC.
The trade journal locked up all three nominations in both categories. “So we'll be framing and hanging two pairs of Silver and Bronze certificates as well,” notes AC editor-in-chief and publisher Stephen Pizzello.
“I’m incredibly proud of our editorial staff and contributing writers, who richly deserve these prestigious honors,” Pizzello said when this year's nominations were announced in September. “For decades, American Cinematographer has been considered the top professional journal in its field, and this recognition by Folio: — the publishing industry’s magazine of record — shines another spotlight on our team’s consistent commitment to outstanding editorial.”
Pizzello adds, “These awards also reflect the high standards of the ASC and its members, who have given the magazine exceptional support over the years — along with many memorable, in-depth interviews about their work as cinematographers. The magazine and the Society work hand-in-hand to produce content that informs everyone from students to ASC Award winners, and the core of that editorial focus is the wisdom our members — and other directors of photography from around the world — share so generously.
“Many prominent filmmakers have told me that American Cinematographer provided the basis of their practical education, and that its content is considered to be the definitive history of production techniques. We take that responsibility very seriously, and we’ll continue to maintain the level of first-rate coverage reflected by these nominations.”
