SRN Awards 2023

The SRN AWARDS will celebrate their 4th edition at the 2023 Conference in Missouri this September 2023.

We invite all members and colleagues to submit Nominations for the best publications of 2022/2023 by the new deadline of 15 July 2023 for articles published between 1 June 2022 & 31 May 2023.Both nominations and self-nominations are welcome. Winners will be announced at the 2023 SRN Conference in Missouri.
The Awards this year will be again in two categories:
Best Monograph – for single-authored or co-authored volumes (any format)
Best Journal Article/Book Chapter – Both articles and chapters normally range around 6-8,000 words but the format may vary.
While no ratings of journals/publishers will be a factor in the evaluation of submissions, all publications should be scholarly, fully peer-reviewed work underpinned by substantial research specifically in the area of Screenwriting Studies. Submitted titles must have been published between 1 June 2022 & 31 May 2023.

Guidelines for the submission of nominations:
All submissions in both categories should be made directly to all three members of the Jury (see contact details below) by 15 July 2023. However, early submissions are most welcome and encouraged.
MONOGRAPHS – Nominees and self-nominees should send hard copies of their monographs directly to each Juror via regular mail/courier. Publishers are usually happy to supply complimentary evaluation/inspection copies: only where this is really not possible (including, for instance, volumes due out very close to the deadline), authors can send a PDF copy of the approved preprint manuscript (in this case via email) as a backup option.
ARTICLES/CHAPTERS – Individual journal articles (i.e. not the whole journal) or chapters (i.e. not the whole book) should be sent as PDF (as per preprint approved draft) directly to each of the Jurors via email.

All submissions will be evaluated independently by our Jury of distinguished academics: Professor Emeritus Tom Stempel

Associate Professor Eva Novrup Redvall

Professor Carmen Sofia Brenes
