***Juan Facundo Riaño Essay Medal: Call for Submissions. Deadline 15th February***
To encourage emerging scholars, ARTES (the Iberian and Latin American Visual Culture Group) awards an annual essay medal to the author of the best essay on the art, architecture or visual culture of the Hispanic world. The winner is also awarded a cash prize of £400, and the runner-up is awarded a certificate and prize of £100. Prize-winners receive a year’s free membership to ARTES, and the winning essays are considered for publication in the annual visual arts issue of the peer-reviewed Hispanic Research Journal.
ARTES welcomes submissions from researchers in a variety of circumstances, but envisages that most essays will be submitted from early career scholars, post-graduate students or undergraduates with exceptionally good end-of-degree dissertations. They must have some connection with the UK.
