Prize Announcement

The Mike McNamee Student Essay Prize in the Philosophy of Sport, sponsored by Taylor and Francis

Entries are invited from current undergraduate and postgraduate students for this new prize. It will be awarded for an essay of no more than 3000 words, in any area of the Philosophy of Sport. The prize is named after Mike McNamee, currently Professor of Applied Ethics at the University of Swansea, and founder of the BPSA.

The prize will be presented at the BPSA annual conference at Trinity College, Oxford April 2nd – 5th 2019. It will consist of free registration and accommodation at the conference, and a prize of £200 of books from the Routledge Catalogue. The winner will be expected to present their work at the conference.

Nine other prize entrants will receive a reduction of £200 on the concession conference rate for conference attendance and accommodation. As such, they will each be liable only for a conference and accommodation fee of £145. While there is no geographical restriction on who may participate in the Essay Prize, travel costs will not be included in the prize.

Entries should be submitted to the conference organiser by Friday 8th March 2019.
