Literary Compositions

Literary compositions are works of poetry, short fiction, and drama. This may include teleplays, screenplays and short theatrical works.


Sui Generis

Sui Generis compositions include those that lie outside the traditional categories of creative work. This may be particularly true of certain kinds of multimodal work such as moving type fonts, game structures, abstract video creations and those works that use a multiplicity of these forms simultaneously.
