JUDGING

FINALIST JUDGING & SELECTION

 

The recipients of the California on Location Awards (COLA’s) were selected from many qualified finalists by a panel of film industry experts.  The twelve judges for 2015 brought their own experience from production work to determine the award winners, as well as assuring objectiveness in the judging process.

 

To select the COLA finalists, all nominations for the awards were voted on by the Film Liaisons in California Statewide (FLICS), a steering committee from Teamsters Local 399, and location manager award winners from the past 10 years.  The top vote getters became finalists.  The judges then met at a luncheon to discuss the finalists’ nominations in each category of awards.  The judges voted in a secret ballot, and the recipients will be revealed for the first time at the ceremony tonight.  In a tight field of so many worthy professionals, all nominees deserve recognition for their exemplary work.

 

The FLICS and the California Film Commission extend our gratitude to this year’s judges.  We appreciate their commitment and time, and are pleased to name them here:
