Crisp Prize

The Crisp Prize will be awarded biennially for the best scholarly book on political science written by an APSA member within 10 years of gaining a PhD.  The Prize is open to APSA members who are resident in Australia.

The winner will be decided by a judging panel chaired by the immediate past President of APSA. Other members will include the current President (or nominee) and two others, including one woman, selected by the Panel Chair in consultation with the APSA Executive.

APSA is now accepting nominations for the 2016 Crisp Prize.

Nominations can be made by any APSA member, including the author of the book. 

The winner will be announced at the APSA conference dinner in September, where the prize of $500 and a trophy will be awarded.

Submission guidelines:

Entrants or their nominators must submit an electronic or PDF copy of the book and a completed nomination form and send both via email to the APSA Executive Assistant by 5pm Monday 27 June, 2016.
