HPA Announces 2018 Award Winners


November 15, 2018 (Los Angeles) The 13th annual Hollywood Professional Association (HPA) Awards took place tonight, honoring the accomplishments of industry luminaries, behind-the-scenes artists and outstanding engineering teams. The HPA Awards set the bar for creative and technical achievement, recognizing individuals and companies for outstanding contributions made in the creation of feature films, television, commercials, and entertainment content enjoyed around the world.

Awards were given to talented individuals and teams working in twelve creative craft categories, including color grading, sound, editing and visual effects for commercials, television and feature film. Victoria Alonso, EVP Production of Marvel, was honored with the HPA Charles S. Swartz Award, and special awards were presented for Engineering Excellence.
