Prizes & Awards

This category is a competition.

Iris Prize Best Feature Award
The recipient of this Award, which is a £1,000 cash prize, is decided by an independent jury.
Cash Award Value: 1,000 United Kingdom Pound

Category Rules

All entries should be by, for, about or of significant interest to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or intersex audiences, and must have been completed within 2 years prior to the submission deadline (That is they must have been completed between 1 July 2014 and 1 July 2016).

Any feature film 40 minutes or longer will be eligible for the Iris Prize Best Feature Award, which is a £1,000 cash prize. Please note: any feature film selected to appear in the 2016 Iris Prize Festival programme will only be eligible for the Iris Prize Best Feature Award and NOT the Iris Prize, which is for short films ONLY.

We’re sorry but any work submitted for consideration in 2015 is ineligible.

If selected, you must be able to submit your work to be exhibited on DCP, or Blu-Ray (Note we cannot exhibit using other formats).

We screen in 1.85 flat, and 2.35 scope.

Works in languages other than English or Welsh must be subtitled for exhibition. English subtitles are strongly preferred for on-line screeners, but works without subtitles will be viewed for consideration.

Digital press kit required after acceptance.

Production information, director’s biography and image, and film stills are essential publicity materials. Please ensure that all images are of the highest quality possible. All digital images must be JPEG or TIFF format and at least 1200 x 900 pixels. Materials will be requested when you are notified of acceptance.

The Festivals Company Limited and the Iris Prize accept no responsibility for the loss or damage of any exhibition material whilst in transit.
