Sophie Coe Prize in Food History 2013

by sophiecoeprize

The Sophie Coe Prize is the longest-running and most generous prize for writing in food history in the English language, given for an outstanding essay or article on the history of food of up to 10,000 words. First awarded in 1995, the fund that administers the prize was founded in memory of Sophie Coe, the eminent food historian who died in 1994.

In 2013 there will be a single prize of £1,500. The winner will be chosen by an anonymous panel of distinguished judges and awarded to the author of an original, informative article or essay on some aspect of food history that embodies new research or provides new insights. Published and unpublished work may be submitted. If the former, it must have been published within the last 12 months of the submission deadline. If the latter, it must be in immediately publishable form.

The submission deadline this year is 1st May 2013.
