SAH 2016 Publication Awards
Every year, the Society presents five awards honoring the most distinguished publications in architectural history, urban history, landscape history, preservation, and architectural exhibition catalogues that have been published in the previous two years. SAH also presents the Founders’ Award for an outstanding JSAH article written by an emerging scholar in the previous two years.
SAH is accepting nominations for the 2016 Publication Awards through August 3, 2015. Eligible titles will have a printed publication date of 2013 or 2014 (2012, 2013, 2014 publication date for the MacDougall). See the SAH website for more information and to download a nomination form.
SAH 2016 Film and Video Award
The SAH Award for Film and Video was established in 2013 to recognize annually the most distinguished work of film or video on the history of the built environment. The award is global in scope with no geographic or political boundaries limiting subject matter or production team. The topic of the film or video must be any aspect of the built environment including the history of buildings, interiors, monuments, landscapes, cultural landscapes, urbanism, designers, engineers, clients, preservation, conservation, citizen engagement, or other topics related to the history of the built environment.
The most important criterion is the work’s contribution to the understanding of the built environment, defined either as deepening that understanding or as bringing that understanding to new audiences. A second criterion is a high standard of research and analysis, whether the production was for a scholarly audience, a general audience, or both. A third criterion is excellence in design and production.
SAH is accepting nominations for the 2016 award through August 3, 2015.
