The Academy’s Board of Governors voted to bestow a Technical Achievement Award to Fredrik Limsäter (Founder and CEO), Björn Rydahl (Co-founder and Technical Product Manager), and Mattias Lagergren (Co-founder and Product Manager) for the design, architecture, and engineering of ftrack Studio in February 2021.

“This is an incredibly proud moment for all of us at ftrack,” says Fredrik Limsäter, ftrack Founder and CEO. “We’re humbled that the platform we’ve worked on for the past decade has won such a prestigious award, especially as it comes with the recognition of our peers in an industry we are so proud to serve. Björn, Mattias, and I would like to thank the entire ftrack team for their endlessly hard work; our families who have supported us over the years; and our clients who have joined us on this journey. We look forward to playing our part as creative studios continue to create in a landscape that needs teamwork now more than ever.”
