For all those considering entering the competition for this year’s Prize, please note that we have just published some minor edits to the Conditions of Entry.
These focus on length (section 1d); and referencing style (section 1a).
Length: The existing 10,000 word maximum is confirmed as being a total inclusive of notes and bibliography.
Style: Whilst we do not stipulate a particular style, we confirm a strong preference for footnoted over author-date referencing, and request that the bibliography contains only works cited.
You can access the full details on our How to Enter Page, which also advises you how to direct any further queries you may have.
