The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences mailed entry forms on May 27, 2003 for the 2003 Scientific and Technical Awards to more than 850 companies and individuals, including past winners, within the sci-tech community both in the United States and abroad. All entry applications must be submitted to the Academy no later than Friday, August 1, 2003.
"We want to begin compiling a list of achievements that can be considered by the Scientific and Technical Awards Committee for recognition at the 76th Academy Awards," said committee chair Richard Edlund.
Achievements must show exceptional merit and evidence of having provided significant advances in the production of motion pictures. Entries will be evaluated by both the main committee and sub-committees comprised of distinguished engineers, scientists and craftspersons before being recommended to the Academy's board of governors for award consideration.
