Cambrian Medieval Celtic Studies Prize for young scholars

CMCS Publications invites applications for an Annual CMCS Prize of £250 for an original article (between 5,000 and 15,000 words) on any aspect of the Celtic-speaking countries in the Middle Ages.

For 2022 the closing date for submissions (by e-mail attachment to is 15 April 2022. Articles should not be available on the web in any form and must not be under consideration for any other journal or for any other prize. CMCS will have the right to print the winning article, subject to peer review. Submissions should be suitable for publication in CMCS in the same calendar year.

Applicants must be 30 or under on the closing date. Because circumstances are difficult to compare, no exceptions can be made for late starters, applicants who have had career breaks, applicants who have changed discipline, etc. These should note, however, that from 2022 CMCS will be offering royalties of up to £100 to all article-authors, irrespective of age. While the quality of academic journals depends on their authors, most journal-publishers share no profits with their authors; Cambrian Medieval Celtic Studies hopes to reverse this trend.
