BASEES has established the George Blazyca Prize in recognition of the outstanding contribution to its field of study made by the late George Blazyca. The George Blazyca Prize is offered annually by the British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies for scholarly work of high quality in East European studies. This is taken to include those countries of Eastern Europe that were formerly under communist rule that were not part of the Soviet Union. Items eligible for nomination are singly or jointly authored monographs. The authors of nominated works must at the time of nomination be members or associate members of the Association. 

For the 2022-23 cycle, the Blazyca Prize scheme is accepting nominations for books published in 2022. The deadline for nominations is 30 June 2023. The winners will be announced early in 2024 and the prize (if awarded) will be presented at the annual dinner of the 2024 conference.

The works received will be scored by our judges against criteria of originality, rigour and significance. Works nominated for consideration must be of a scholarly character and must be in English. Winners will be works that make a major contribution to East European Studies. For 2022-23, our judges are Dr Alison Long and Dr Richard Mills.
