Australian and New Zealand Society of the History of Medicine
ANZSHM biennial book prize
The ANZSHM Biennial Book Prize is awarded to the best book produced on the history of health and medicine in Australia, New Zealand and the wider Oceania region published within a specified two-year period. The value of the prize is $500.
The next prize will be awarded in July 2023. Books published from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2022 are eligible for entry.
Only sole authored or multi-authored monographs will be considered for the prize. Edited books and exhibition catalogues are ineligible for entry.
Nominations for the prize may come from publishers or the author/s themselves. Authors or publishers are required to send three hardcopies of the nominated book to the judges for review. The winner will be selected on the basis of the academic merit of the publication, its accessibility to a wider audience, and its contribution to the field of the history of health and medicine.
Nominations with details of the book and its publisher should be sent to the ANZSHM Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 March 2023. Books must then be made available to the judges by 1 April 2023.
All nominated books will be displayed at the Society's biennial conference dinner where the finalists and prize winner will be announced.
