Sophie Coe Prize 2015

by sophiecoeprize

2015 marks two decades of the Sophie Coe Prize! We will be celebrating its 20th birthday in various ways over the course of the year, and especially look forward to being in touch with all our past winners as well as those we are yet to meet.

Meanwhile, we are pleased to announce that the submission deadline for entries for this year’s Sophie Coe Prize in Food History is Friday 1st May 2015. This year there will be a single prize of £1,500.

As usual, the winner will be chosen by our anonymous panel of distinguished judges and awarded to a highly original and informative essay or article that embodies new research or provides new insights into some aspect of food history. Published and unpublished work of up to 10,000 words may be submitted.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.

Entries MUST comply with all of our Guidelines in order to be considered: for full details please read our How to Enter page carefully. You can also take some inspiration from our previous winners.

Don’t miss out on your opportunity to apply for this prestigious and generous prize in its 20th anniversary year. You can Follow us (button at the bottom of the page) to receive updates and reminders about submitting your entry as the deadline approaches.
