About the Adaptation Essay Prize

The Adaptation Essay Prize is a new innovation from the journal, launched in 2011 to encourage the best new scholarship in the field. While the journal publishes many articles which focus on the relationship between literature and film, the Editors are particularly keen to publish work which challenges the primacy of that relationship: this might include essays on computer games, opera, popular music, animation, genre fiction or work with a wider theoretical sweep.The Adaptation Prize

The winner’s prize will consist of:

* Publication of the winning paper in a volume of Adaptation
* A cash prize of £50.00
* A year’s free print and online subscription to Adaptation

Other entries of sufficient quality may 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 2 April 2013.


Submissions for the essay competition must arrive no later than 2 April 2013. 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
