The 47th annual Student Academy Awards competition is accepting submissions and the June 1 deadline is just a couple of weeks away.

We have examined the situation around the Covid-19 crisis and we have determined that it would not be effective to move our deadline date for this year. Be assured, per our rules, any student who finishes their film after June 1 will still be eligible for next year’s SAAs (if they meet all of the other eligibility criteria). Students will not be penalized because they couldn’t finish their film in time due to restrictions instituted to fight the pandemic.

The competition rules, and a link to the online submission portal are available at
