LOS ANGELES, CA — The Academy has voted 19 students as winners of the Student Academy Awards 45th competition. This year, the Student Academy Awards competition received a total of 1,582 entries from 278 domestic and 122 international colleges and universities, which were voted upon by a record number of Academy members. The 2018 winners join the ranks of such past Student Academy Award winners as Patricia Cardoso, Pete Docter, Cary Fukunaga, John Lasseter, Spike Lee, Trey Parker, Patricia Riggen, and Robert Zemeckis.

This year, the Student Academy Awards honors one returning winner in the Domestic Narrative category, Brian Robau, a Silver Medal winner in 2016 for “It’s Just a Gun.” Additionally, for the first time, a team of five directors is being honored in the International Animation category.

All Student Academy Award-winning films are eligible to compete for 2018 Oscars in the Animated Short Film, Live Action Short Film or Documentary Short Subject category. Past winners have gone on to receive 59 Oscar nominations and have won or shared 11 awards.

Students will arrive in Los Angeles for a week of industry activities that will culminate in the awards ceremony on Thursday, October 11 at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. There, the Academy will announce the medal winners - gold, silver, and bronze - in the seven award categories.

The Student Academy Awards were established in 1972 to provide a platform for emerging global talent by creating opportunities within the industry to showcase their work.
