2019 SPF Award Details

For the Sustainable Production Impact categories - Productions are eligible if they were in production and/or completed sustainable production activities between July 1, 2018 and August 1, 2019.

If nominated, the Studio/Production must demonstrate that they incorporated sustainable production practices on set. This may come in the form of a publicly available case study, wrap report, confirmation/completion of sustainable production tools such as the Production Environmental Action Checklist (PEACH) and Production Environmental Action Report (from USA studios), etc.

Individuals are eligible if they work in or with the motion picture industry (e.g., crew, at an industry organization, vendor, supplier, etc.) and have been observed as demonstrating excellence in sustainable practices and acting on opportunities to implement positive change in the motion picture community and/or on production.

Projects that have been awarded a similar award by another organization are still eligible for the Sustainable Production Excellence Award. 


Nominations in the categories of Industry Builder and Sustainable Production Impact will come from SPF collaborators.

Nominations for individual recognition in the category of Sustainable Production Champion will come via a community open call process. 

Selection of all nominees will be made by the SPF committee made up of industry stakeholders.  If the case arises where a SPF committee member is nominated, that person will have to recuse her/himself from the judging process in the category nominated.

Outstanding applicants may be asked to submit additional documentation if needed to verify the nomination. Comprehensive entries will be evaluated in-depth by the Jury in a second-round assessment if needed. 

Selection will be based on the production or individual’s performance, sustainable practices implemented, and/or overall positive impact.
