ANZALS Elery Hamilton-Smith Award for Best Early Career Academic Paper
Applications have now closed, and we look forward to announcing the winner at the Welcome Event on Tuesday 10 December!
The ANZALS Elery Hamilton-Smith Award for Best Early Career Academic (ECA) Paper is a biennial prize awarded to an academic who is within five years of PhD graduation and who is first author on a published peer reviewed journal article that makes a unique contribution to the leisure studies field.
Research Student Scholarships
Applications have now closed, and we congratulate all those who were awarded scholarships this year - the standard was again very high. The scholarships, generously provided by ANZALS, allow the winners to attend the HDR Student Workshop on Tuesday 10 December for free, and also cover the conference registration fee. Students are required to pay for their own flights and accommodation.
ANZALS Awards for Best Paper and Best Student Paper
Applications have now closed, but all full papers submitted for the conference were eligible for the Best Paper award, and students who were first author were eligible for the Best Student Paper award. A double-blind, peer reviewed selection process was used and referees asked to nominate the best papers submitted to the conference. The nominated papers were judged by a sub-committee of the Conference Scientific Committee. Criteria for the Best Paper and Best Student Paper Awards were: relevance and importance to the field of leisure studies, originality and innovation, and clarity of explanation and expression.
