Established in 1986 to commemorate the invaluable contribution of the late Professor F.S.
Northedge to the creation of Millennium: Journal of International Studies, the annual
Northedge Essay Competition furthers a Millennium tradition of celebrating and promoting
exceptional student scholarship.
We are pleased to invite Masters, PhD students, and recent graduates in International
Relations or related fields to submit an essay for the competition. The essay may be on any
topic within International Relations or related areas of study. We especially welcome the
submission of critical papers and invite creative, innovative, boundary-pushing and
non-canonical approaches and theoretical arguments on international studies. The essay
must be double-spaced, in a recognised reference style, and between 8,000-10,000 words in length (including footnotes, excluding the bibliography).
Shortlisted submissions will be sent for peer review, and the winner will receive a cash prize
of £500 and recognition on Millennium’s social media platforms. Please send your
contributions in an anonymised PDF via email marked ‘Northedge 2021 submission’, to
Deadline: 22 January 2021 .
