Victorian Review: Hamilton Prize
Victorian Review invites applications for the Hamilton Prize for the best graduate student paper submitted to the journal in a given year. The annual award honours the effort and achievements of Susan Hamilton, editor of Victorian Review from 2000 to 2006.
Papers should be 20-25 pages in length and should not have been previously published. The winner must have been registered as a graduate student in the six months preceding the competition deadline. Winners will receive an award of $250 CAN and publication of the winning essay in Victorian Review. The deadline for submissions for the competition will be June 30 2012.
The winning essay will be selected according to three criteria:
- contribution to Victorian studies;
- quality and originality; and
- style and clarity.
The award will be judged by the editorial team of the journal in consultation with Advisory Board members.
