Regulations for the Cambridge Philological Society Prize

The Cambridge Philological Society has established an annual prize of £1000 for the best article by a graduate or early-career researcher published by the Cambridge Classical Journal in that year.

The prize competition is open to any individual(s) who at the time of submission was/were:

(i) registered for a PhD (full- or part-time)

(ii) within three years of submitting their PhD dissertation.

Eligible submissions will belong to one or more area(s) within Classical Studies nominated annually by the Society’s Council.

Submissions should meet the criteria set out for submission to CCJ (details at: https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/cambridge-classical-journal). The paper should not have been published before (except perhaps as a departmental working paper or similar), nor submitted for publication elsewhere. Authors agree to give CCJ first refusal to publish the article.

Submissions are to be written in English. They should not exceed (but need not be as long as) 10,000 words, including tables, figures, notes, appendices, references etc. Submissions (in both Word and PDF format) should be sent to the CCJ Editors <ccjeditors@classics.cam.ac.uk> by email, along with a clear indication that the author(s) wish to be considered for the Prize and details of eligibility as set out above. The Editors reserve the right to seek further evidence of eligibility. In the case of jointly authored submission, each author must meet the eligibility requirements for the Prize.

Submissions for the prize competition will be subject to the normal CCJ double-blind peer review/editorial process. As a result of this process, other submissions for the competition (aside from the prize winning article) may also be accepted for publication.

The author(s) of the winning submission will receive a prize of £1000 (shared equally between the authors of a jointly-authored submission).

The Prize will be awarded by Council of the Cambridge Philological Society on the recommendation of a Prize Committee consisting of the President (in the chair), the Editors of CCJ and one other member, or former member, of Council. The Council reserves the right not to award the Prize if there are no submissions of sufficient merit. All decisions of the Council are final.

The winner will be announced at the Cambridge Philological Society's Annual General Meeting (usually in May).
