We have launched a new essay prize for 2019 in partnership with Taylor & Francis, for first time authors in the leading journal, Studies in Conservation.

The competition will run for a year from July 2019. During this time, all major papers accepted by Studies in Conservation will be considered for the prize if the lead author is being published in that journal for the first time. Three judges, including a leading conservation practitioner from the IIC’s Grants and Awards Committee, the Director of Publications and News in Conservation Editor will consider entries and announce a winner in Summer 2020.

You can read the full guidance for entries here. The winning work will be published and promoted as a free to access paper, available to download on the Taylor and Francis website for 12 months, and both of our organisations will promote the winner's work on websites and across social media during that time.

If you have furhter queries, please contact the IIC Office at office@iiconservation.org.
