Computers and Composition Awards

Computers and Composition Michelle Kendrick Outstanding Digital Production/Scholarship Award

Dates of eligibility for all awards are January 1 thru December 31 of the previous year.

The Computers and Composition Michelle Kendrick Outstanding Digital Production/Scholarship Award was inaugurated in 2006 to recognize the creation of outstanding digital productions, digital environments, and/or digital media scholarship. It acknowledges that any single mode of communication, including the alphabetic, can represent only a portion of meaning that authors/designers might want to convey to audiences. As does our field, this award recognizes the intellectual and creative effort that goes into such work and celebrates the scholarly potential of digital media texts and environments that may include visuals, video animation, and/or sound, as well as printed words.

This award is dedicated to Michelle Kendrick, who passed away in 2006.  Her outstanding scholarship continues to make its mark on the field.

Deadline for nominations is March 15. Send nominations for the Computers and Composition Kendrick Outstanding Digital Production/Scholarship Award to the committee chair:
