The Council for Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (CHASS) is calling for nominations for its 2017 Australia Prize for a Book. You can nominate someone you know or even yourself to be in the running to win the $3,500 cash prize sponsored by Routledge.
The Prize will be awarded to the author whose book, in the opinion of the judges, contributes most to cultural and intellectual life in Australia.
Nominees in this category must have published a non-fiction book/e-book in any Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS) area between 1 January and 31 December 2016.
A single author can submit up to four books. Books should be by a single author or, at most, two authors. Edited collections are not eligible. The book may have been published overseas; however, the nominee must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident. Self-published books/e-books will be considered if the author can provide evidence that the book has been peer-reviewed.
Be sure to send in your nominations by 5pm AEST on 30 June 2017.
To be fair to all applicants, incomplete and late applications will not be accepted.
