Call for submissions for the Design History Society Student Essay Prize

Submissions are invited for the DHS Essay Prizes, established in 1997 to foster and support high standards in design history research in higher education. The awards recognise exceptional student contributions to the field of design history.

Two essay prizes are awarded annually; one to an undergraduate student and the other to a postgraduate (MA or PhD) student. This year we have added 4 runner up prizes in light of the number of high quality submissions we receive each year.

The Undergraduate and Postgraduate Essay Prize includes:
- One year's membership of the Design History Society (includes subscription to the Journal of Design History)
- Free place at the Design History Society conference “Design and Transience” in September 2022, at Izmir Institute of Technology, Izmir, Turkey.
- £100 in Oxford University Press book tokens

Runners up will receive one year’s free membership of the Design History Society (includes subscription to the Journal of Design History).

Winners of the Essay Prize are announced at the Annual DHS Conference. All authors are informed of the competition results in late July.

Deadlines
Postgraduate: 16.00 GMT on 17 May 2022
Undergraduate: 16.00 GMT on 28 June 2022
