2015 Northedge Prize – £500 Award

MillenniumsThe new Editorial Team for Millennium Volume 44 is pleased to announce that submissions for the 2015 Northedge Prize are now being accepted.

New to the competition this year are cash awards for the competition winners:


£500 to the 1st place recipient and essay publication.

£250 to two runners-up.


Monday, 9 February 2015. Submissions and other enquiries should be sent via email to millennium@lse.ac.uk.


Established in 1986 to commemorate the invaluable contribution of the late Professor F.S. Northedge to the creation of Millennium, the annual Northedge Essay Competition furthers a Millennium tradition of publishing exceptional student scholarship in a leading IR journal. The winning essay will be published in the first issue of the next volume.

The essay may be on any topic within International Relations or related areas of study, but critical papers that engage with progressive issues, innovative approaches, and philosophical arguments, are especially welcomed. The essay must be doubled-spaced and 7,000 to 9,000 words in length.

The Northedge Essay Competition is open to any student who is currently pursuing or has recently completed a degree in International Relations or a related field. The essay may be part of a doctoral research project, an essay or dissertation submitted as part of an undergraduate or Masters’ degree course, a seminar paper, or similar work. Essays must not have been previously published, or simultaneously submitted for consideration elsewhere. For undergraduate or Masters’ degree candidates whose essays form part of the requirements for a degree awarded by examination, essays must be submitted to the competition after the examination process has been concluded. Selected essays will be peer-reviewed and judged by the Editors on the basis of the essay’s contribution to the advancement of the field, originality of the argument, and scholarly presentation.
