Student Academy Awards 2013

The winners of the 40th Annual Student Academy Awards have been announced. The 2013 Student Academy Awards are “the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ annual competition for college and university filmmakers. The awards were originally named the Student Film Awards and were first presented in 1973. Since 1975, the awards have been given annually, usually in June. The current name was adopted effective in 1991.

The awards offer prizes in four categories: alternative (experimental film), animation, documentary, and narrative. Gold, silver, and bronze awards may be given in each category, with accompanying cash grants of $5,000, $3,000, and $2,000, respectively, as of 2005.
