NZHA is calling for submissions to be considered for the 2017 Mary Boyd Prize.
Named in memory of the Pacific historian Mary Beatrice Boyd (1921–2010), this prize is awarded biennially for the best article on any aspect of New Zealand history published in a refereed journal. Nominated articles must have been published between 2 April 2015 and 1 April 2017. (This includes online publication of the final article by a refereed journal.)
To enter, authors should email a print-ready PDF copy of the article along with publication details to email@example.com with the subject line ‘Mary Boyd Prize Entry’.
Individuals may enter only one article. If you do not enter the competition yourself, you are welcome to nominate an article by another author by following the same process.
Entries close at 5pm, 31 July 2017.
