The CAMEOs celebrate the power of books at the heart of the creative industries and the films, TV programmes and virtual worlds they inspire.
With the creative industries worth £84 million to the UK economy and $2,250 billion to the US economy per year, these awards are a chance to recognise some of the most exciting contributions from individuals across the sector, from authors to directors, agents, publishers and producers.
Entries are open to any producer, studio, games company or organisation in the US who has successfully transformed a UK-originated book into another format. Judges will be looking for demonstration of both quality and success from entries, 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.
In a world where stories are being consumed in so many different forms, the CAMEOs will honour the adaptations that have made the most impact in the last calendar year, across five categories:
- Book to Film
- Book to TV
- Book to Game
- Book to Stage
- Book to Audio
