Entries are still open for the Adaptation Essay Prize 2016. The prize aims 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 http://bit.ly/1QXYoRd
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.
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 should 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.
