Nominations are now open for the New Zealand Historical Association biennial book prizes: the W. H. Oliver Prize, and the Best First Book Prize.
The W. H. Oliver Prize will be awarded to the best book on any aspect of New Zealand history published between 1 April 2015 and 31 March 2017. The Best First Book Prize, which is being offered for the first time, will be awarded to the best first book by an author on any aspect of New Zealand history, also published between 1 April 2015 and 31 March 2017.
The closing date for nominations is 31 May 2017. Nominations for the Best First Book Prize may also be considered for the WH Oliver Prize.
In making their assessment, the judges will evaluate the work on the quality of its research, the strength and effectiveness of its analysis and the significance of its contribution to historical knowledge.
