Waiver Requests

A waiver of the conference registration fee and/or SCMS membership requirement may be granted in exceptional circumstances for media practitioners and artists or renowned scholars from other disciplines whose contributions would illuminate the panel or workshop topic. If chairs or organizers will be requesting a waiver for any panel, workshop, or roundtable participant, a waiver form (ONE request per submission form) must be submitted online by September 15, 2020, 5:00PM CT.

If the panel, workshop, or roundtable proposal is accepted and the conference program chair approves the waiver, the organizer of the panel, workshop, or roundtable along with the individual receiving the waiver will receive an e-mail notification from the SCMS office in late October 2020.

Chairs and organizers, please note: upon submitting a waiver request, participants will be added as a non-member to our database for the duration of the conference submission period, which will allow them to be added to the submission form.  This process takes up to 24 hours to complete, so please submit your waiver requests early.  

Note:  Open call participants and graduate students do not qualify for these waivers.  Artists, renowned scholars or filmmakers from other disciplines cannot receive a registration and/or membership waivers in two consecutive years.
