The Harry Hodson prize is an annual award by The Round Table: the Commonwealth Journal of International Affairs (the UK's oldest international relations journal). This is an annual award in memory of the journal’s late Editor, Harry Hodson, and to mark his association with The Round Table for nearly 70 years.
The Round Table invites essays of between 1500 and 2000 words on any Commonwealth-related theme contributed by anyone aged 30 years or younger. The topic may be freely chosen by applicants, but should be of relevance to the contemporary Commonwealth.
The prize has two components:
publication of the winning article in The Round Table in the following year
a cash award of £1,000.
Entries for the 2017 award should be marked ‘Hodson Prize’ and sent—via email only—by 31 October 2017 to Dr Venkat Iyer (Editor, The Round Table), at firstname.lastname@example.org.
