Nominations have been requested for the UCT Creative Works Award, which recognises major creative works (art works, performances, productions, compositions, architectural designs, and so on) produced by UCT staff within the past five years.
The award may be made to jointlyproduced creative works. However, in the case of jointly-produced works in which non-UCT persons are involved, the UCT person should have made the most significant contribution to the work. Evidence of this must be supplied with the nomination. Most of the work should have been done during the producer's time of employment at UCT. No restriction is placed on the medium in which the creative work is produced. Generally, a single award is made in any one year, and no award will be made if no creative works of sufficient merit have been nominated.
Nominators must be staff members of the university, and may nominate their own work. Nominations need not be endorsed by the person who produced the creative work. Creative works previously nominated (except winners) may be re-nominated.
Each nomination must be seconded and should include the following: A letter of nomination stating why the nominator is recommending the creative work for this award.
A copy of, or supporting portfolio for, the creative work as appropriate, as well as substantive published reviews or information regarding public response to the work.
The closing date for nominations has been extended to Wednesday 16 September 2009. All nominations should be sent to Colleen Windvogel, Research Office, Department of Research and Innovation, 2 Rhodes Ave, Mowbray. For further information please contact Colleen Windvogel.
