Lipin Trust to underwrite Natpe Awards

MUMBAI: The National Association of Television Program Executives' (Natpe) Educational Foundation announced today that The Lippin Family Trust has agreed to underwrite the Foundation's Annual Student Video & Film Production Awards. The announcement was made today by Natpe co-founder and Educational Foundation president Lew Klein. The trust is administered by Dick and Ronnie Lippin.


Klein was quoted in the release saying, "The generosity of Dick and Ronnie enables the Natpe Educational Foundation to continue to provide a cash award to the winning student and a matching grant to his or her school, as well as awards to the contest's runners-up. These awards and their accompanying recognition give great incentive to the students who will become television's future producers and directors. We are very grateful to The Lippin Family Trust."

The Awards that are held each spring recognize excellence in the production of student video and film projects worldwide.

All productions are required to feature original footage related to the applicant's school or university. According to a Natpe release, last year, the event had received more than 150 entries from 88 schools, representing 34 states and other countries around the world. This was the largest number of submissions in the competition's history.

The jury for the awards has been culled from the entertainment industry executives and educators who judge entries on concept, execution and creativity.

Dick Lippin stated in the release, "Natpe has been an important part of our lives for almost two decades, and Ronnie and I are delighted to support the extraordinary work Lew Klein and the Natpe Educational Foundation have done to encourage young people to consider our industry for a career."

Natpe has pitched a new initiative called Pitch Pit for its 2004 convention that is slated to be held at the Sands Expo Centre and Venetian Hotel in Los Angeles from 18-20 January 2004.

In October 2003, Natpe had unveiled The Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards in honor of one of television's brilliant pioneers. The awards were instituted to recognize excellence in the creation of television programming. 

The Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards will be formally presented at a reception on 19 January 2004, at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas during the annual conference and exhibition.
