The Location Managers Guild International (LMGI) has announced that submissions for the 9th Annual LMGI Awards are now open online. The LMGI Awards celebrate the instrumental role of locations in developing character and advancing cinematic narratives. The ceremony also honours film commissions who have gone above and beyond during the scouting, pre-production and production of specific projects.

We are really excited to accept submissions from across the globe, and invite everyone to do so.”
