About the award

Beginning in 2013, the JHG Prize is awarded to the paper judged by the editors and members of the international advisory board to have made the greatest contribution to the advancement of scholarship in historical geography in the previous year, primarily on the basis of the significance and originality of the research but also taking into account the career stage of the author.

The award consists of a £250 prize.
