Prize Essay Competition


Prize Essay Competition

The Agricultural Economics Society Prize Essay Award is supported by the David Blandford and Katharine Hassapoyannes Endowment Trust.

The Agricultural Economics Society invites the submission of essays on the following conditions.

a)    The Prize is intended for essays based upon the original work and experience of the author.  Essays are expected to be single authored, with any necessary acknowledgements to supervisors and advisors.

b)    In the year of submission, the author must be within six years of first graduation or, in the case of non-graduates, under 35 years old.

c)    The subject, chosen by the author, may deal with any aspect of agricultural economics. Essays should 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)    Anonymous 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 Associate Editors will act as judges, with discretion to award prize money of £3,000 for any winning essay, or for that prize money to be divided between more than one winner. Their decision will be final

f)    The prize will be awarded to an essay, or essays, judged to be suitable, after such revisions as the judges suggest, for publication in the Journal of Agricultural Economics. The author of the winning essay will be invited to make a presentation of their essay, in a form to be determined by the AES Programme Secretary and to receive the Award at the subsequent AES Annual Conference.
