In 2011 Studies in Russian and Soviet Cinema has entered its fifth year of publication. It has established itself as a scholarly journal of high ranking, with a rigorous, anonymous double peer review system.
In the Soviet tradition of the grand public celebration of anniversaries, we have decided to mark the journal’s fifth birthday with an essay competition. Articles on any aspect of Russian/Soviet cinema will be considered, with a maximum length of 6,000 words. The texts should be sent to the Editor, at the address below, with the name of an academic supervisor (including email) who can be contacted to confirm that the author is a doctoral student at a Higher Education Institution. All submissions must be in English, and non-native speakers are advised to have their texts “styled” before submission.
Deadline for submission: 1 April 2011
The jury will be composed of the journal’s co-editors; they will assess the submissions anonymously. Results will be available by 1 September 2011.
First Prize: £150, a year’s free subscription to the journal, and three
Intellect books of your choice. The winning article will of course appear in SRSC, in volume 5.3 (2011).
