The X111th Biennial Conference of the Film & History Association of 
Australia and New Zealand (FHAANZ ) will present for the first time a 
series of awards as part of the Conference program.

Research and Writing Awards
The Film & History Association Research and Writing Awards have been 
devised to honour excellence in film and television history 
publishing and research. Three competitive research and writing 
awards will be conferred by the Patrons of the Film & History 
Association for best monograph, best essay and best unpublished work.

Achievement Awards
Two Achievement Awards will be bestowed by the Film and History 
Conference organisers. These awards will recognise excellence of 
achievement by Australian and New Zealand film and television 
historians respectively.

o	The Joan Long Award commemorates the major contribution of 
the late producer, director and screenwriter whose passion for the 
medium of film, its future, its institutions, and the preservation of 
its history in Australia, was both selfless and inspiring.
o	The Jonathon Dennis Award is named after the driving force 
behind, spokesperson for, and first director of the New Zealand Film 
Archive who died from cancer, aged 48, in 2001.

More detailed information on the new awards scheme, as well as terms
