Call for Entries: 4th Annual Pipeline Awards

May 9, 2017














We're excited to announce that we're bringing back the Pipeline Awards for the fourth year in a row! The Pipeline Awards are our way of shining a light on the heroes far behind the screen that make laborious processes better and faster at studios of all sizes, regardless of whether they use Shotgun or not.

Nominate cools tools & pipeline heroes
Know about tools, integration projects, or people we should consider for a Pipeline Award? Let us know! You can nominate yourself, someone in your studio, or any tool you've come across that impressed you. Email your nomination to by June 19. Just send us a note with the following information:
1) Indicate whether you're nominating a tool or person
2) Include a brief description of the tool or write-up of what the person has done that demonstrates their Pipeline Hero-ness


What we're looking for
Pipeline Shotty Awards recognize excellence in pipeline tool development, integration, engineering and usage (whether or not it involves Shotgun). Maybe you have a simple, sophisticated tool that takes menial tasks off of artists' plates, or a tool developed to facilitate VR, track the ROI of your projects, streamline review, or just a cool hack!

Pipeline Hero Awards recognize individuals who regularly share best practices on the dev list or forums, contribute to the wider community by speaking at tradeshows or publishing articles on the subject, or have developed tools that have been widely adopted by the industry.

Looking forward to your submissions!
