Are you an African PhD student? Or an early career African scholar? If so, consider submitting your best article to African Affairs and you could be considered for the African Author Prize.
The Prize is awarded every second year, and African Phd students in overseas universities and African-based authors at the beginning of their career are eligible. The Prize is awarded for the best article published in African Affairs over the two year period, and the winner receives £500.00, a trip to the ASAUK and a year’s free subscription to African Affairs.
