Guidelines for the 2023 round of the competition:
The Society invites nominations of articles published during 2023 from editors of learned journals, editors or publishers of collected volumes, and heads of university departments. Authors may not self-nominate (but may ask editors, publishers, or university departments to consider nominating them). Articles may be published anywhere in the world, but must be written in French or English.
There is a limit of one entry per author per calendar year while eligible. Where more than one nomination for an author is received, the panel chair will ask for the author’s preference as to which entry goes forward. To be eligible for nomination, authors:
– must have completed their PhD and be within five years of obtaining their PhD when their article is published. Due allowance will be made for career interruptions that have prevented continuous research and publication, such as parental leave or sick leave.
– must have been registered for their PhD and/or worked since then in a Department of French/Modern Languages, or equivalent.
The deadline for receipt of nominations for the 2023 Prize is 27 February 2024. Entries may be submitted by email, any time before the deadline, to Professor Nick Harrison (firstname.lastname@example.org), together with:
– a statement that includes full publication details of the article concerned and an indication of how the candidate satisfies the two criteria for eligibility specified above
– a PDF file of the article as it appears in print. Nominations not accompanied by a PDF file will not be valid.
