The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers’ SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal has earned a Distinction Award from the New York Metro, Philadelphia Metro, Atlanta, and Rochester Chapters of the Society for Technical Communication. By receiving this honor in the STC regional competition, in which entries are judged on technical content, achievement of purpose, and technical execution, the Journal advances to the STC International Summit Awards competition.

The SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal provides insight into the technical world of motion-imaging science. Published nine times annually, the Journal is a membership benefit for SMPTE professional, executive, and student members and to nonmembers via print or digital subscription. Each issue covers a specific topic, and the Journal periodically includes foldout wall charts to clarify complex technical topics in a visual form. Special topics include wrap-ups from various SMPTE conference events, notably the SMPTE Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition and the Future of Cinema Conference (formerly the Technology Summit on Cinema) held annually at the NAB Show. Each September the Progress Report issue provides valuable insight into the latest industry developments, focusing particularly on SMPTE's standards community work.

"Congratulations to the entire editorial board, led by Glen Pensinger, and to Dianne Purrier, managing editor of the SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal, for this recognition," said SMPTE executive director Barbara Lange. "Our Journal is an excellent example of the work that the Society accomplishes for its members and the industry as a whole, and we're proud that the care, thought, and skill invested in its production have been honored with this STC Award."
