Prix Jacques Prévert du Scénario

The Prix Jacques Prévert du Scénario is a French film award created in 2007 by the French Screenwriters Guild (La Guilde Française des Scénaristes), a trade association which represents more than 350 screenwriters working in the film, television and animation sectors in France.[1]

The annual award is named in honour of the French poet and screenwriter Jacques Prévert (1900 – 1977). It recognises outstanding screenplays of films released in the previous year, in which winners are decided by a jury of screenwriters. The award ceremony is usually held every 4 February to coincide with the birth anniversary of the late writer.

The award is given in two categories: "Best original screenplay" for a screenplay written directly for the screen, and "Best adaptation" for screenplay based on previously released or published work.[2]
