LMGI awards await distribution prior to the 2016 ceremony

The Location Managers Guild International Awards are awarded at an annual show honoring outstanding contributions to location scouting in the film and television industries. The Location Managers Guild held its inaugural show in March 2014 at the Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills, with honors going to Location Managers Robert Boake (Game of Thrones), Ilt Jones (Iron Man 3), David Doumeng & Charlie Love (Nike), and the Albuquerque Film Commission (Breaking Bad).[1]

Following the success of its first year, the LMGI has since continued to honor the outstanding creative contributions of location professionals around the world annually, currently held in October, at the start of the Hollywood awards season in Los Angeles, CA.

Originally called the LMGA Awards, the name of the awards changed with the guild's name change to reflect the international nature of filmmaking to the LMGI Awards in 2016.

In addition to the awards given for the best location professional in film, television, commercials, and film commission, the LMGI presents honorary awards to a location professional for lifetime achievement, to a trailblazer who has been a leader in furthering the recognition of location professionals in motion picture and television, a humanitarian award, and the Eva Monley[2] award for an entertainment industry professional that has demonstrated 'above and beyond' support of the work of location professionals.
