The Call for Programmes/Productions
The organizers of the Festival are pleased to announce the Call for TV programmes or New Media productions for the 2017/18 European Science TV and New Media Festival and Awards. The range of categories is similar to that in 2016, expanded to nine Awards set out below. These include all the TV and New Media genres and Science in Society categories from previous years plus two subject based prizes following the success of the Physics Prize over the last two years. The festival and awards will again be in Lisbon, Portugal, but the season has changed to avoid a clash of activities in Lisbon, so will be in March 2018.
The deadline for entries in all the nine categories is Friday 30 June 2017. All entries must include a filled-in entry form (either sent with this or obtainable by e-mail from the EuroPAWS Office) and a DVD (these can be sent separately).
List of Categories and Entry Criteria
A production can be eligible in more than one category; these may be designated either by the entrant or the organizers. The “genre” categories are:
The Best European Production involving Science in the following four genres:
- TV Documentary
- TV Drama and Docu-drama
- TV General programmes like magazines or current affairs (an item or a complete programme)
- Informational or promotional Video and Productions for the Web or Science Centres/Museums
The three so-called “Science in Society” areas are:
- The Environment
- Medical Research
- Women in Science
And the two categories focusing on areas of science and technology are:
- The best production presenting Physics.
- The best production presenting any branch of Engineering
There will also be dialogue created on Facebook and Twitter in relation to issues in the films and in the festival discussion. This will be flagged in advance and continue during the festival.
Programmes and productions will be eligible if they were first broadcast or released in 2015 or later up to the end of June 2017. A production first broadcast or released before 1 January 2015 may be accepted if the producers or broadcaster are new to the festival and only became aware of it recently. This will be at the discretion of the organizers. They must also have been produced for first transmission or release (or shared first) in Europe, and not have been entered for a previous edition of this festival (other than through an error of transmission date). There needs to be a significant science or technology content in any entry, which may also be the stories of individual scientists or engineers and their lives.
If you are not sure if a programme or production would qualify, please feel free to discuss any such questions with the organizers’ London office at EuroPAWS,(email@example.com or tel: 0044 20 8455 2571 or mobile: 0044 7785 511541). Contact person: Andrew Millington, the Festival Director. In the final analysis, the selection decision of the organizers will be final.
The Festival and Awards 2017/18 is organized jointly by EuroScience, Apordoc Portugal, and EuroPAWS.
