SRN Awards 2019

The Executive Council has decided to establish an annual award for outstanding achievements in screenwriting research. The first SRN awards will be given at the SRN conference in Porto in autumn 2019 in two categories:

  • Book
  • Research article

Nominated texts should be published between September 2018 and June 2019. Nominated texts should be made available to the three members of the jury, either in print or in digital form no later than June, 15th2018. The text can be publishedby the date of the conference.

Book: monograph or edited volume.

In general,everything that can be included into screenwriting research from narratology to production studies, can be nominated, even when they do not deal with screenwritingexclusively.Screen writing manuals will not be considered, except the jury argues for its scholarly value beyond its primary instructional purpose.

Research article

In general,articles published in academic journals (usually peer reviewed or editor reviewed), either in print or online. Articles outside of academic journals might be considered if they fulfil the conditions of a research article in length, form and content.

The criteria for the awards are just:
