<nettime> Dept of Defense Academy Awards (Combat Camera Oscars)

The DoD Visual Information (VI) Production Awards Program is an
initiative of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs
(ASD(PA)).  Its purpose is to recognize outstanding VI productions
created within or for the Department of Defense, thereby enhancing the
value and professionalism of the DoD VI production program.

Thirty-six productions were entered by the Military Services in the
competition for productions completed during the latter half of 1998 or
in 1999.  Judging of those entries was conducted in Washington, DC,
March 20-22, 2000.  First, second, and third place winners were selected
in each of the four competition categories, and one production was
selected for a Special Mention Award.  A Production of the Year was
selected from among the first place winners in each of the four
competition categories.

How each of the winning productions placed within their respective
categories, as well as the Production of the Year, will be announced
April 17, 2000 at an awards presentation ceremony during the Worldwide
DoD VI and Combat Camera Conference and Workshop in Washington, DC.  Two
awards will be presented for each winning entry, one to the producing
activity and one to the requesting office of primary responsibility
