Film and Art School Etudes Competition
First held in 1997, Student Etudes Competition supports the development of novice filmmakers and provides unique opportunity to confront cinematic achievements of students from various parts of the world. Each year, a growing number of film schools submit their best etudes for consideration of the Camerimage selection committee. The winners are chosen by an international jury of prominent filmmakers and industry professionals.
The author of the best cinematography wins the coveted Laszlo Kovacs Student Award – The Golden Tadpole. Silver and Bronze Tadpoles are awarded for the second and third place respectively.
