SAGE awards new Acronym recipients

SAGE awards new Acronym recipients

The SAGE acronym indicates peer recognition of excellence in a field, it is the highest honour that SAGE can bestow on an editor. The acronym application process aligns itself with the international standards set by the American Cinema Editors (ACE) and Australian Screen Editors (ASE) associations, making it a rigorous process for both the applicant and committee.

Only SAGE members who have officially been awarded the acronym may use the initials S.A.G.E. after their names on screen credits.

C.A. van Aswegen, Edgar Sibaya and Ula Oelsen were awarded the Acronym in 2017, and received their certificates at a special SAGE event on 20 February 2018 in Johannesburg.
