IAMHIST PRIZES

The Michael Nelson Prize

The IAMHIST-Michael Nelson Prize for a work in media and history is a biennial prize awarded for the book, radio or television programme or series, film, DVD, CD-ROM, or URL making the best contribution on the subject of media and history, which has been published or shown in the preceding two years.

The prize is dedicated to Michael Nelson, whose passion for media and journalism inspired IAMHIST throughout the years.  For more information on Michael Nelson, please consult: www.michaelnelsonbooks.com

Two awards are made.  The first, a prize of $1000, will be for the best contribution by a book; the second, a prize of $1000 will be for the best contribution by a (multi) media contribution: this second prize will consider media such as films, CD-ROMs, and URLs separately from print media,

For the most recent call for submissions, and rules for the Michael Nelson prize, please visit here.

In 2017, Shelley Stamp was awarded the Michael Nelson Prize for Lois Weber in Early Hollywood (California: University of California Press, 2015).
