What makes a hot-shot editor or great edit?

Edit Royale is a fun, live and interactive annual event brought to you by the Australian Screen Editors Guild which has thrilled attendees every year since the first Edit Royale in 2017.

Live at Digistor's offices in Sydney, five emerging editors will compete to show off their editing artistry and speed. Each will edit a one-minute music video in only two hours and this year we will be adding a genre bending surprise twist! As part of the live audience, you will witness the edited programmes emerging from the raw media while enjoying live commentary, food and refreshments, culminating in the selection of the Edit Royale 2022 winner.

The editor who produces the best edit of the night will win great prizes.


Join in and attend in person

We will have a live audience at the venue this year, so register now to join the fun. You get to check out the editors making creative decisions under pressure and watch how others work across the different platforms - picking up invaluable tips. Network with friends and enjoy the refreshments as you witness the contestants battle it out.

And once the cutting is done, you get to cast your vote live to choose the winner of Edit Royale 2022.


Sally Fryer has 30 plus years experience as a film editor both in London and Sydney, cutting over 100 docos in her career.


Kris Rowe has over 20 years industry experience, having worked on films such as Moulin Rouge, Superman Returns, Peter Pan and The Magician.

... but wait ... there's more

While the editors are cutting there will be live, expert commentary from our fabulous compares Sally Fryer and Kris Rowe.

We'll also have tips and tricks presentations from ASE guru Timothy Hadwen, covering both Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere.

In addition, there'll be tech talk, fun polls, interactive Q&A and drop-ins from previous competitors. How did they approach their cuts? What are their favourite tips and tricks?

And, if that's not enough excitement for one night, we'll also be drawing Lucky Door Prizes!

Can't make it in person? Register to watch the live stream.

Want to join the fun, but can't get to the venue on the night? Then register here and we'll provide a live streaming link so you can gather your friends, get your own food and drinks and join in the fun. You'll also be able to vote for your favourite via mobile.

Think you have what it takes to compete?

When you register for this event, you have the option to apply to be a competitor.


We'll provide you with a computer (PC or Mac), your editing software of choice (Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere or DaVinci Resolve), plus all media files ready to edit. All you have to do is turn up and strut your stuff.

But get in early as the competition is fierce and spaces are limited. The five competing editors will be selected from the applicants and announced on Tuesday 8 February 2022.
