Crisp Prize

The Crisp Prize is 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.

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

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

Please note: The Crisp Prize is biennial and will not be offered in 2017. It will be next offered in 2018.
