Submitting to these prizes
Submissions for the Gladstone and Whitfield Book Prizes are by publishers only. If you are an author of a monograph published in 2022, please let your publisher know that the Society’s annual book prizes are now receiving submissions.
We ask colleagues to encourage early career historians to consider their recent monographs for submission. In this way, we seek a set of submitted books that reflects the diversity of the historical profession, and research, today.
Submissions for the Alexander Prize are by the author. Again, we encourage colleagues to bring this award to the attention of early career historians.
All submissions, for each of these categories of prize, should be made via the Society’s online applications portal.
