Now in its third year, the objective of the Awards is to enable talented young film directors to make high quality video trailers for great books. Students from the National Film and Television School are invited to submit proposals to create a 90 second trailer for a book from a selection presented by Random House. The winners each receive £5000 to create their videos which are then used to promote the books online for example on author and fan sites, YouTube and Amazon. Videos from previous years have also been used in adverts, on TV news and as enhancements for ebooks.
