The Magic Lantern Society of the United States and Canada
Announces Its Second Annual
$500 Student Essay Award
The Magic Lantern Society of the United States and Canada is pleased announce its second Student Essay Award contest. The award has been created to invite the participation of young scholars, archivists, and artists in research on the magic lantern. We welcome submissions related to the culture, practice, and study of the lantern, from the 1600s to the present, anywhere in the world, but especially in America, or Canada.
Entrants must be enrolled in graduate or undergraduate academic program at the time of submission. Students may submit essays originally written for academic courses, but may not submit anything previously published in print or online. Submissions should be written in English and should not exceed 5,000 words. All submissions are due electronically by April 1, 2013.
A committee of the Society will select the winner. The award, which consists of a monetary prize of US $500, will be announced on June 1, 2013, and the essay will be published soon thereafter in The Magic Lantern Gazette, the Society’s print and on-line research journal. The winner will also be invited to make a presentation at the next convention of the Society, to be held in Boston in 2014.
Please send your submissions (in PDF or Microsoft Word formats) to the editor of The Magic Lantern Gazette:
