THE FSAC STUDENT WRITING AWARD
AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING ABILITY IN FILM AND MEDIA SCHOLARSHIP
The Film Studies Association of Canada is again offering an award for the best essay submitted by a student member. The FSAC Student Writing Award recognizes graduate students who show outstanding ability in film and media scholarship. Essays, in French or English, must study moving images, broadly defined to include film, television, video, or digital media. All disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches are invited, provided the essay has the potential to contribute to the discipline of film studies.
Authors must have been enrolled in a graduate program for at least one semester this year, and must be an FSAC member at the time of submission. Essays prepared by students to fulfill course requirements may be submitted, although each student may enter only one essay. All submissions must be sent electronically, preferably from the student’s university e-mail account. Files must be formatted as double-spaced, typewritten RTF or PDF documents, not exceeding 7,500 words including endnotes, bibliographies and appendices. The essay document must be anonymous. Identifying information must be provided only in the body of the submission e-mail message, which should list (1) the author’s name, (2) the title of the essay, (3) mailing and phone contact information, and (4) the student’s university, graduate program, and degree status.
Submissions cannot be already published or submitted for publication. The winning essay will receive suggestions from the jury to facilitate and encourage revision for peer-review with the Canadian Journal of Film Studies.
