The jury for the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association Peter C. Rollins Documentary Award is currently accepting film and video documentary/nonfiction entries that treat aspects of popular and American culture. Selection for the Rollins Award will be based primarily on strength of message, creativity, technical innovation, and overall style as the work treats popular and American culture topics or themes.
Submission for the award is open to professional and amateur moving-image makers working in film, video, and digital media. Work must be completed within the last three years in order to be considered. Entries may consist of one feature-length or up to three short works and must be provided with the completed entry form below. Entries must be in VHS videotape or DVD formats. Two copies of each work must be submitted. Submitted copies will not be returned. There is no entry fee.
The award includes a $500 travel grant to assist winners in attending the conference. The winning work and a short program of finalists will be exhibited during the 2011 national Popular Culture/American Culture Associations’ meeting April 20-23, 2011, in San Antonio.
