The Saturday ‘Visiter’ Awards (SVAs) are a new honor, presented by Poe Baltimore, recognizing Edgar Allan Poe’s continuing legacy in the arts and literature around the world. The prizes will honor media, art, performance and writing that adapts or is inspired by Poe’s life and works. Works of any medium and genre released, printed, distributed or first performed between January 1, 2020, and December 31, 2022 (the previous three years) may be eligible. Digital or web-based entries may also qualify but must have been first published/posted in this period.
Entries may be submitted by an artist, producer, publisher, author or any member of the creative team. An ensemble member may submit, but the rights holder's contact information must be provided. Publishers and production companies are invited to submit entries in either category on a creator's behalf. Self-published or independently-produced works are eligible. In each case, the rights holder must be identified and permission granted by them to be considered for an award. Entries may be submitted in any language, but are required to provide English-language subtitles. Creators are limited to a single entry per category--choose your best work.
