Prize Article Competition

Prize Article Competition

The Agricultural Economics Society Prize Article Award (formerly the Prize Essay Award) is generously supported by the David Blandford and Katharine Hassapoyannes Endowment Trust. In addition to the award, the winning candidate will receive support with travel costs and be invited to present their article and receive their award at the annual Agricultural Economics Society conference.
  

The Agricultural Economics Society invites submissions on the following conditions:
 
a)    Articles must be an original piece of work and be sole authored. Support from supervisors or other advisors can be given in the acknowledgements.
 
b)    The competition is open to anyone who is within six years of registering for a PhD or under 35 if they have not registered for a PhD. Appropriate allowances will be made for entrants who have registered for a part-time PhD.
 
c)    The competition is open to innovative and diverse types of contribution in agricultural economics, for example, new theoretical insights, empirical research, critical literature reviews and essays that assess current thinking on topics of interest to the Society. Articles must be presented in the style and length appropriate to a paper submitted for publication in the Journal of Agricultural Economics. (Notes on submission are contained on the inside back cover of each issue of the Journal and on the Journal website).
 
d)    Anonymised entries should be submitted by 30th November, and sent as an electronic attachment (pdf) with a covering letter containing the author’s details, to the Secretary of the AES: secretariat@aes.ac.uk
 
e)    A panel of editors from the Journal of Agricultural Economics will act as judges, with discretion to award prize money of £3,000 for a winning article, or for that prize money to be divided between more than one winner. Their decision will be final. If no articles are considered suitable the judges reserve the right not to make an award in any particular year.
 
f)     Travel costs, conditional on presenting the article at the AES conference, will be awarded, up to a maximum of £1,000 for each winning candidate.
 
g)  The winning article (or articles), after such revisions as the judges suggest, will be published in the Journal of Agricultural Economics.
 
h) The winning author(s) will be invited to present their article and receive their prize at the annual Agricultural Economics Society conference.
