WA Screen Culture Awards Submissions Are Now Open

The WA Screen Culture Awards celebrate the achievement, innovation and ambition of our local industry.

Established in 2020 by the producers of the Revelation Perth International Film Festival, submissions are now open across 21 categories.

Festival Director Richard Sowada says that “in acknowledging the enormous diversity and breadth of screen practice in Western Australia, the WASCAs are one of the few award events internationally that embrace traditional film forms, VR, AR, moving image art, games, web and commercial production on the same stage and in the same categories.”

In doing so, WASCA organisers look toward highlighting the convergence of forms, audiences and aesthetics as well as signposting WA as a location of innovation and collaboration.

The WASCAs will be held on Sunday 5 December at Luna Palace Cinemas Leederville.

Embracing all screen forms from new, established and emerging screen practices, awards will be presented in the following categories:
