The recipients of the California on Location Awards (COLAs) are selected from many qualified finalists by a panel of film industry experts.  

To select the COLA finalists, all nominations for the awards were voted on by the Film Liaisons in California Statewide (FLICS), a steering committee from Teamsters Local 399, and location manager award winners from the past 12 years.  The top vote getters became finalists.  The judges then met at a luncheon to discuss the finalists’ nominations in each category of awards.  The judges voted in a secret ballot, and the recipients will be revealed for the first time at the ceremony.  In a tight field of so many worthy professionals, all nominees deserve recognition for their exemplary work.

The California On Location Awards honors the best Location Professionals in entertainment. The Awards Show will take place December 15, 2019 at The Hilton Los Angeles – Universal City.
