Annual Society of Camera Operators Awards Celebration

Join the Society of Camera Operators for this unique celebration of the art and craft of the camera operator. The SOC will be awarding the Technical Achievement Award and the Camera Operator of the Year Awards for Film and Television. The Lifetime Achievement Awards will be postponed this year due to challenges with the pandemic.

The SOC Awards Celebration will be presented in two parts: in person and virtual. On March 5, 2022, an in-person event, limited in size, will honor the nominees and recipients of the Technical Achievement Award and the Camera Operator of the Year Awards for Film and Television. The SOC will then host a virtual gathering to celebrate the nominees and recipients, which will include screening clips and live conversations. The virtual Awards Celebration will be free of charge and open to SOC membership and the community at large.

Join us in acknowledging the nominees and winners at the SOC Awards—the only industry awards ceremony with a charity focus—supporting The Vision Center at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
