Domitor is happy to circulate the CFP for the 2021 Domitor student essay award competition. The Domitor Student Essay Award is an annual competition designed to stimulate interest in the field of early cinema studies, to involve young scholars and archivists in the activities of our organization, and to reduce the gap between established and emerging generations of scholars and archivists of early cinema. It is crucial for the future of early cinema studies that young historians, theorists, and archivists present their work and enter into discussion with current scholars and scholarship.
This edition of the competition will exceptionally grant two awards to make up for the cancellation of the 2020 award. The winners of the award will be announced by October 2021. Each award consists of a monetary prize (US$500) and assistance in obtaining publication of the winning essay in a scholarly film history journal. Submissions for the 2021 award are due no later than September 13, 2021. The CFP and more information are available on Domitor’s award page. Please help us share this opportunity to your students !
