A prize of £250 is offered annually for the best essay on a subject related to the archaeology, architecture, or history of Oxfordshire written by someone who has not previously published in the field. The winning essay will be considered for publication in Oxoniensia.
The essays will be judged by a panel appointed by the Society, the judges looking for evidence of original contributions to knowledge, quality of research, and clarity of expression. The decision of the judges will be final, and the Society reserves the right not to award the prize if there are no suitable entries.
There is no age limit for entrants, but entry is restricted to those who have not previously had their work on Oxfordshire history published in a refereed journal. Both individuals and groups are eligible.
The closing date for entries is 30 September each year. There is a limit of 8,000 words, which should include a preceding summary of no more than 150 words and references.
