Camille Awards 2022 announce nominees, Jury Members & Lifetime Achievement Award

The Camille Awards – European Film Composer Awards will take place on the 27th of September 2022 at the Croatian National Theatre in Split, within the framework of ECSA’s General Assembly hosted by HDS – Hrvatsko društvo skladatelja, the Croatian Composers’ Society. This will be the Camille Awards’ second time in Croatia, after the 2018 edition in the frame of the International Sound & Film Music Festival in Pula.

The event is organised by ECSA – European Composer & Songwriter Alliance with the support of the EU Creative Europe Programme and in collaboration with FAME’s Studio Orchestra Music Recording Company and OTICONS, the European Talent Agency for film composers.

This edition will honour composers of original music for audio-visual artworks in three categories: “Best Film Score”, “Best Score for a Feature Documentary” and “Best Original Music for a Drama Series”. ECSA will also honour the work of one more composer with a Special Award.

The Camille Award for Lifetime Achievement

ECSA is honoured to present The Lifetime Achievement Award to one of the greatest Croatian, European and world renowned composers of film, theatre and TV music: Alfi Kabiljo.

With this award, ECSA wishes to honour his successful career which spans half a century, with over 40 films and 100 TV series. The Alliance believes Mr. Kabiljo’s ability to work across so many musical genres over the years, while maintaining such a high level of professionalism and artistic integrity, serves as an example to the entire community of audiovisual music creators.
