This type is for awards of all kinds. Only the general, or high-level, award topic should use this type. General award topics would include Academy Award, Nobel Prize, and Pulitzer Prize. Categories, such as Academy Award for Best Picture, Nobel Prize in Chemistry, and Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Reporting should use the "award category" type. This type has properties for the individual categories (past and present) of the award, and for the organization(s) that present the award. Some awards, such as the Pritzker Prize in architecture, do not have categories; these awards can be typed as both award and award category. See the help topic entering award information for more details about using these types.
This type can be used for all kinds of awards and prizes. This type should only be applied to specific awards (e.g., the The Academy Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role, the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, the Nobel Peace Prize) rather than for the general award (e.g. Academy Award, Pulitzer Prize, Nobel Prize). If the award only has a single category, the award and award category should share the same topic.For more information on entering awards data, see the help topic Entering Award Information.
This type is used to categorize award categories to allow comparisons of awards in the same or similar disciplines. This should be considered a very loose type, and award categories will probably have many disciplines, depending on what kinds of things people are interested in filtering on. For example, the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry could have the disciplines poetry (since it's for works of poetry), literature (since poetry is a type of literature), and book (since the award is specifically for a book of poems, rather than a single poem). Or the Academy Award for Best Actor could include film, acting, and male as disciplines.
