A prize of £1,000 will be awarded for the best essay by an early career or doctoral researcher on the history of London, in a new competition sponsored by the Curriers’ Company in association with the IHR and The London Journal.
Essays may be on any aspect of the history of London, from the Romans to the present day, reflect any relevant approach or disciplinary perspective, and can consider London alone or in comparison with other cities.
Essays must be based on original research, and should not have been previously published. The winning essay will normally be published in The London Journal. The deadline for submissions is 31 August.
