This year's gathering marks the 16th consecutive year of “The Getaway”, as it's called, and it will be held in Orlando, FL. Besides a time of fellowship, comparing notes, and classes to learn the latest in video technology the four-day event will be capped off with the annual Hanley Awards ceremony to recognize our members' video excellence in several different categories.

Best Documentary – Is there a person you know whose life story would enrich all who knew it? Telling the story of a real event or person is an art. Combining still photos, video, old film, narration and/or help tell this story. We recognize the best in artfully managing all this media.
Cut and Paste Award for Editing – Do you have video that needs to be boiled down to present a message? Maybe it's simple, like the best scenes from your summer vacation.

That's why we recognize the best in editing with a “Hanley”.
