Essay Prize: Church Monuments Society Essay Prize, deadline 31 December 2020

The Council of the Church Monuments Society offers a biennial prize of £500 called the Church Monuments Essay Prize, to be awarded with a certificate for the best essay submitted in the relevant year. The aim of the competition is to stimulate people, particularly those who may be writing on church monuments for the first time, to submit material for the peer-reviewed international CMS journal Church Monuments. Therefore, the competition is open only to those who have not previously published an article in Church Monuments.

The subject of the essay must be an aspect of church monuments of any period in Britain or abroad. The length (including notes) shall not exceed 10,000 words and a maximum of 10 illustrations, preferably in colour. The prize will only be awarded if the essay is considered by the judges to be of sufficiently high standard to merit publication in Church Monuments.

The closing date for new entries is 31 December 2020.

For a copy of the rules and for the guidelines to contributors, see the link below. Do take time to look at the Society’s website https://churchmonumentssociety.org, or contact the Hon. Journal Editors for more details and/or advice on the suitability of a particular topic.
