Any APF member who is not currently serving as a judge may nominate a work he or she has written or produced in whole or in part or read, seen, or heard in entirety for consideration as a most important futures work.
The nominating member will submit a written justification to the Core Committee stating why he or she believes the work deserves a most-important-futures-works award and in which category the work should be judged. Submit your nominations to Ken Harris, MSFW Chair.
Submit entries with: title, author, format, date, publisher, category (see list under "Eligible Works"), nominating member, why you think it’s important (no more than 300 words).
Here is the full plan for the 2013 nominations.
Eligible works shall be in one of three categories. Those that (1) advance the methodology and practice of foresight and futures studies, (2) contribute to the understanding of the future of a significant area of human endeavor or of the natural world, or (3) present new images of the future, e.g., visual arts, films, poetry, or fiction.
The works shall be publicly accessible, but do not have to be formally published. The artifacts may be in the form of books, articles, theses, policy papers, reports, dissertations and speeches in print and online; movies and videos; television and radio programs; works of art; electronic or other games and simulations; websites; software or multimedia presentations.
Current nominations are listed here. A list of possible nominations has been compiled by the Core Team for consideration by members. If you believe any of these works deserve recognition, then please submit for nomination including a statement of reasons to Ken Harris, MSFW Chair.
