The London Journal and the Curriers' Company are pleased to announce the London Journal Essay Prize competition for early career scholars, with the deadline for entries 28 February 2023. The prize comes with a £1000 reward and publication, subject to peer review, in the London Journal.


Essays must fall within the scope of the London Journal.  They may be on any aspect of London life, past and present, reflect any relevant approach or disciplinary perspective, and can consider London alone or in comparison with other cities. Essays must be based on original research, and should not have been previously published. The prize is open to early career scholars anywhere in the world, including graduate/postgraduate students and anyone who has completed their PhD (i.e. been successfully examined for it) within the previous three years.
