Full and Associate Members Application Form part 1 – file upload

To Support Your Application – Please Read

We require:

  1. A short statement telling us why you would like to join the ACO and how you can help to support the aims of the Association. Please bear in mind that the ACO is operated at all levels by existing members – help and engagement with the workload of the Association are crucial to the success of our goals.
    The ACO expects the members collaboration and support – you will be called on from time to time to engage and serve either at Board level, in one of the Committees or to assist with events and initiatives organised by the Association. Please specify any practical help you can offer the ACO. This is considered as an important obligation of membership.
  2. A nomination from a full member who provides a short character reference. If you don’t know a full member please provide three letters of recommendation form industry professionals, one of whom must be a Director of Photography.
  3. Your current CV with the following information:
    • Credits should be an accurate representation of applicant’s role on production.
    • Daily engagements should be quantified and clearly marked as such.
    • Your CV must include the year of production for each credit.
    • For episodic productions, state episodes for which you received a credit.
  4. Please provide suitable 1:1 (min. 600×600 pixels) head and shoulders PORTRAIT picture for use as your ‘headshot’ on the ACO website members page.
  5. Fill in the online application form as completely as possible.
  6. Confirmation to have read the ACO rules and acknowledge the guidelines of the ACO.

Failure to observe these criteria may prejudice your application!
