This year the Church Monuments Society is running an Essay competition. The aim of
the competition is to stimulate people, particularly those who may be writing on
church monuments for the first time, to submit material for the peer-reviewed international
CMS journal Church Monuments. Therefore, the competition is open only to those who
have not previously published an article in Church Monuments.
The subject of the essay must be an aspect of church monuments of any period in Britain
or abroad. The length (including endnotes) should not exceed 10,000 words and a maximum
of 10 illustrations, preferably in colour. The prize will only be awarded if the
essay is considered by the judges to be of sufficiently high standard to merit publication
in Church Monuments.
