However, it's now possible to apply for a listing in the encyclopedia.

You have to meet the following requirements:

1. You have been a 1st unit cinematographer [director of photography] on at least 5 full-length feature films, which have been released theatrically - this doesn't apply to cinematographers specializing in documentaries [see: How to proceed - 2];

2. You are still active as a cinematographer;

3. You will provide the editors - by e-mail - with the following information:

    -> one or more photos;

    -> date [e.g. 1 January 1970], place and country of birth;

    -> education;

    -> career information;

    -> awards;

    -> your complete filmography [films, television and miscellaneous (as camera operator, gaffer, etc.)] - arranged in order of filming dates [NOT release dates] - with director[s], film format [16mm, s16, s35, Panavision (p), High Definition Video (HD), etc.], b&w and/or color, genre [short feature or documentary + length in minutes]; it's not enough to copy your page on the IMDb;

    -> [optional] contact information, e.g. name, address, telephone and e-mail of your agent or your own office.

4. You will inform the editors of updates [new films, etc.];

3. We will notify you by e-mail the moment your entry is ready to be published;

4. You have to return to this page and pay your donation - click the DONATE button below.
