Entries are now open for the Adaptation Essay Prize 2016. The prize was launched in 2011 to encourage the best new scholarship in adaptation studies. While the journal publishes many articles that focus on the relationship between literature and film, the editors are particularly keen to receive work which challenges the primacy of that relationship. This might include essays on:

         Computer games


         Popular music


         Genre fiction

         Work with a wider theoretical sweep

Previous winning entries and more information about the prize are available at

The Prize
The winner's prize will consist of:

- Publication of the winning paper in a volume of Adaptation
- A cash prize of 50
- A year's free print and online subscription to Adaptation

Other entries of sufficient quality may also be invited to publish.

Entry requirements
The Essay Prize is open to anyone currently registered for either an undergraduate or postgraduate degree on any subject within adaptation studies. The entry must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Essays are to be no longer than 4,000 words, inclusive of footnotes and references should conform to Adaptation house style. The closing date will be 1 April 2016.
Entries must be made via the journal's online submission system. If you have any general enquiries about the competition, please contact the Editor, Dr Deborah Cartmell, at [log in to unmask]<javascript:encrypt('djc',%20'',%20''%20);>
