Wave Awards seeking nominations for a few good women

Deadline Thursday, February 2 for awards, given out at Women Making Waves conference


The WAVE Awards honour women in the screen industry in Atlantic Canada. They are given out at the Women Making Waves conference, which takes place March 9-11 in Halifax, the second annual event.

The WAVE Awards recognize noteworthy women in the local film and TV industry. The awards have no categories, they exist to salute women in the region's screen industry for their contributions, accomplishments, emerging talent, vision, leadership, dedication and behind-the-scenes support.

“We are looking for remarkable nominees who have made an indelible mark on the screen industry---and the people it envelopes---in their own unique way,” says Jan Miller, co-chair with Ann Bernier of Women Making Waves 2012, in a press release. Any woman in any part of the industry can be nominated.
