<nettime> SSRC-ICA and VAI-SSRC prizes


Hi all -

(With apologies for cross-posting), SSRC has some new opportunities that
may be of interest:

Now in its second year, SSRC is sponsoring three awards with the
International Communications Association:  



*	COMMUNICATION RESEARCH AS COLLABORATIVE PRACTICE
	
*	COMMUNICATION RESEARCH AS AN AGENT OF CHANGE
	
*	COMMUNICATION RESEARCH AS AN OPEN FIELD

Nominations for the ICA awards are now open, with a January 31 deadline.
Nominations have to come from ICA members, but there are no restrictions on
nominees.   Prizes will be awarded at ICA in May.   

See http://www.icahdq.org/aboutica/awards.asp or below for more details.  

SSRC is also co-sponsoring a new fellowship with the Van Allen Institute, a
New York-based non-profit that fosters innovation in the architecture and
design of public life:

*	THE NEW YORK PRIZE FELLOWSHIP IN INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION

For this year's competition, VAI and SSRC seek proposals from researchers,
designers, and architects investigating the spatial conditions and
implications of contemporary intellectual property regimes.  Awards include
project funding up to $10,000, stipend, work and gallery space at the
Institute, and publication in the Institute's annual series Projects in
Public Architecture. 

Applications for the SSRC-VAI fellowship are now being accepted by VAI,
with a March 9 deadline.  

See

More prize detail...

SSRC-ICA PRIZE for COMMUNICATION RESEARCH AS COLLABORATIVE PRACTICE

The CRCP prize is awarded to researchers who engage in innovative forms of
collaboration to address emergent problems in media and communication. It
is designed to encourage collaborative communications research combining
the efforts of researchers, practitioners, and other interested parties in
the production of new knowledge.

Collaboration that falls outside the usual incentive structures of the
academy and that overcomes risks associated with building new kinds of
partnerships will be a focus of this reward. The award carries a cash prize
of $500.
 

SSRC-ICA PRIZE for COMMUNICATION RESEARCH AS AN AGENT OF CHANGE

The CRAC prize of $500 is awarded to research that has a demonstrable
impact on practice outside the academy, with clear benefits to the
community. How communication research may serve as an agent of change and
social benefit is open to definition with the application for the award.


SSRC-ICA PRIZE for COMMUNICATION RESEARCH AS AN OPEN FIELD

The CROF prize of $500 is awarded to researchers who have made important
contributions to the field of communications from outside the discipline of
communications. It rewards and supports dialogue with other fields and
institutional locations in which vital new understandings of the
communications environment and the public sphere are being produced.


VAI-SSRC "NEW YORK PRIZE FELLOWSHIP IN INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION"

The Van Alen Institute and the Social Science Research Council welcome
proposals from researchers, designers, and architects investigating the
spatial conditions and implications of contemporary intellectual property
regimes, in recognition of their role in reorganizing basic social
understandings of public and private, licit and illicit, freedom and
constraint.
