— International Film Festival of The Art of Cinematography
   This prestigious, unconventional film festival celebrates cinematography and cinematographers and awards films for their visual and photographic values. The films in competition are judged by the international jury (usually consisting of cinematographers, directors, and film critics) that grants its main prize, the Golden Frog (Złota Żaba), to the best film. In addition, students' films compete for the Golden Tadpole award (Złota Kijanka). Camerimage also grants the Lifetime Achievement award and holds seminars and workshops mostly targeting film school students. Organized for the first time in 1993 in Toruń by its founder-director Marek Żydowicz, the festival was moved to Łódź in 2000. The winners of the grand prize include major cinematographers such as Stuart Dryburgh, Dick Pope (twice), Piotr Sobociński, and Krzysztof Ptak. The Lifetime Achiement award has gone to Sven Nykvist (1993), Vittorio Storaro and Witold Sobociński (1994), Conrad Hall (l995), Haskell Wexler (1996), Vilmos Zsigmond (1997), Laszlo Kovacs (1998), Giuseppe Rotunno (1999), Billy Williams (2000), Owen Roizman (2001), Freddie Francis (2002), William Fraker (2003), David Watkin (2004), Tonino Delli Colli (2005), and Robby Muller (2006).
