A prize of £100 is offered for the best undergraduate dissertation in political geography submitted to a UK university during the 2023-24 academic year.

We welcome nominations that are conceptually, methodologically, and empirically innovative from across the broad spectrum of political geography and its sub-disciplines.

Please note: Nominations are limited to one per department and should normally be of First-Class standard and nominated by Heads of Department / dissertation supervisors as appropriate.

Nominated dissertations should be submitted as a single PDF file of less than 25MB in size, along with a copy of the appropriate departmental dissertation regulations. Nominations will be shortlisted by a panel of political geographers who will decide on the winner(s) and any highly commended entries.

The panel especially welcomes submissions from universities that are not traditionally considered to be ‘elite’, and those written by students with non-traditional or minority backgrounds.

Submissions to: l.temple@sheffield.ac.uk (Luke Temple). Submissions should include a post-September contact email address for the student.

Deadline: 12 July 2024
