Awards of Merit

Awards of Merit

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was founded on May n, 1927, and should not be confused with “ W amp as,” which is described on page 306. The AM.P.A.S. is an association of those concerned intimately with the production of films, and its members include the leaders in acting, directing, technical work, and writing. As with “ Wampas,” so the A..M.P.A.S. has developed a system of annual awards, which are much prized by those who gain them.
