The concept is not so much directed to students but to professionals and teachers to improve knowledge, to get acquainted with new equipment, new trends and most of all to learn from each other’s.

This award continues the traditions of the Aranyszem (Goldeneye) Cinematographer Awards which was founded in 2004 by Emil Novák.
The Portuguese Society of Cinematographers aip driven by the IMAGO INTERNATIONAL awards has held for the first time in its history a similar event.
