The Magic Lantern Society 

of the United States and Canada


Announces Its Third Annual



$500 Student 

Essay Award




The Magic Lantern Society of the United States and Canada is pleased to
announce its third annual 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 most especially in
America or Canada.


Entrants must be enrolled in a 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, 2014. 


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, 2014,
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 Society's Convention, to be
held near Boston on July 10-13, 2014.


Please send your submissions (in PDF or Microsoft Word formats) to the
editor of The Magic Lantern Gazette:
