CAMEOs

    The CAMEOs were created in recognition of the book at the heart of so many creative industries’ successes. The awards recognise the many creative endeavours spawned by books, from book to screen and everything in between! We all have our favourite adaptations, whether we agree or not if the original book, or the secondary format, was better. There are four categories: book to: TV; Film; Stage; Audio. Anyone can submit an entry, be they a production company, publisher, agent, bookseller, or anyone wanting to nominate a third party.

    We would be delighted to receive your application for the 2020 CAMEO awards.

    Criteria: Judges will be looking for demonstration of quality and success, including, but not limited to: box office ticket sales; reviews; press coverage; critical acclaim; social media profile; peer-to-peer recommendation, and industry prize nominations.
