Yap was honoured for stellar picture editing work on Deysnc, the capstone film he created in his fourth year of Sheridan’s Honours Bachelor of Film and Television degree program. He is also a past recipient of an International Students Creative Award, claiming first prize in the 2020 competition for his short film Shift about the mental health toll the COVID-19 pandemic exacted on a nurse.

Yap’s recognition continued what already was an extremely successful 2023 awards season for Sheridan students and graduates. Eamonn O’Connor (Advanced Television and Film ’04) worked on two of the five films nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, including as co-editor of Oscar-winning Navalny, and fellow ATVF ’04 graduate Steve Taylor claimed a CCE Best Editing in Docu-series/Docu-drama/Factual/Documentary Short Form award for The Unsolved Murder of Beverly Lynn Smith: Episode 101 — The Catch.

Two more ATVF alumni were nominated for Canadian Screen Awards in the Best Picture Editing, Children’s or Youth category (Jane MacRae for Holly Hobbie: The Aspiring Ally and Courtney Goldman for Odd Squad Mobile Unit: The Problem With Pentagurps/Three Portals Down), while Media Arts graduate Anna Bigos earned a CSA Best Picture Editing, Factual nomination for Arctic Vets.
