The Article Prize
In 2006 the Society inaugurated an annual prize for the best article published in the Society’s journal FRENCH HISTORY in each calendar year.
The journal’s editorial board act as the judges and the Society’s trustees make the final decision. Subject to the trustees’ verdict the prize will amount to a maximum of £250.
It is hoped that the winner would attend the following annual conference held by the Society in order to receive their award.
