The APSA News Room contains the latest press releases and news announcements for the Asia Pacific Screen Awards.


Winners in the 7th Annual Asia Pacific Screen Awards, the region’s highest accolade in film, will be presented at Brisbane City Hall, Brisbane, Australia, on 12 December 2013.

The Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) welcomes applications for accreditation from national and international media before 10 December 2013. The accreditation application form can be obtained from the APSA communication and marketing department on apsamedia@brisbanemarketing.com.au or +61 7 3006 6200.

Three days of events in the stunning surrounds of Brisbane and its international cultural precinct will take place in the lead up to the Ceremony. Interviews and photo opportunities with the 2013 Nominees and special guests will be available during this period.

To be considered for accreditation, all journalists must complete an application form and supply the following supporting documentation:

  • An official letter on company letterhead, stating intention to publish/air your coverage.
  • Information about the publication’s circulation, distribution and number of issues per year, or the program’s audience, number of times it goes to air including repeats, timeslot and whether or not it is recorded live.
  • Evidence of coverage is required to be sent to the APSA communication and marketing department by January 11, 2013. Any ongoing accreditation is dependent upon receipt of this evidence. We anticipate your coverage to be published or go to air at the time of the Awards Ceremony on 12 December 2013, or immediately after and that the evidence of your coverage will demonstrate this.

Applications are approved at the discretion of the APSA and further discussion will not be entered into.
Email confirmation of your application will be sent to you as soon as is practicable after receipt of application.

Upon receipt of your application, the APSA communication and marketing department may request additional supporting material such as:

  • A recent copy of your publication or DVD/CD ROM of your program or relevant website link
  • A photocopy of your professional business card
  • Two recent articles/broadcasts bearing your name
