DEADLINE EXTENDED: BAFTSS Practice Research Award open for submissions

Due to a technical difficultly with the email address we have extended the deadline for this year’s BAFTSS Practice Research Award until 30 November 2016.

We are delighted to be partnering with the British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies (BAFTSS) again this year for the 2016 Best Practice Research Portfolio.

Reflecting the growing “performative” tendency of film and moving image research taking place in/through/around practice-based outputs, BAFTSS would like to invite submissions to the above award of practice research work in the following areas:

  1. Audiovisual Practice-Research: e.g. Film/TV/video/screen-writing/moving image practice
  2. Videographic film and moving image studies: e.g. online digital video essays / scholarly remixes
  3. Research Applications and Infrastructure: e.g. film and television studies research-related mobile applications, online databases and archives.

The winning work will be announced at the BAFTSS Annual Conference and showcased on the Screenworks website.

Individual or research group nominees must submit a practice portfolio related to one research/practice-research output, including detailed documentation of the research rationale using this Submission Form. One output might include several related practice research projects (e.g. a series of short films) or just one (e.g. a database, a film, an app).

Nominees are required to submit a research statement of no more than 2000-words as part of this portfolio, offering a route map to the practice as research as per the guidelines below. The portfolio is intended to enable nominees to point towards the wider research context and other supporting documentation, such as websites/blogs, published articles, and conference papers which allow the practice to accrue the necessary patina of research significance.

The work will be judged by a panel of peer experts using the criteria outlined in the research statement.

  • Dr Sarah Atkinson (University of Brighton)
  • Dr Sarah Barrow (University of Lincoln)
  • Dr Charlotte Crofts (University of the West of England)
  • Dr Catherine Grant (University of Sussex)

We are inviting work for the period from 1 September 2015 to 31 August 2016. To submit please email your portfolio to charlotte.crofts@uwe.ac.uk by the deadline: 30 November 2016

Last year’s winners are featured in Volume 6
