Awards and scholarships

ANZALS 2019 is offering three best paper awards, plus competitive scholarships for research students (at Honours, Masters or PhD level)!  All awards will be presented at the Welcome Event at Rydges Queenstown on Tuesday 10 December, giving delegates an opportunity to attend the award winners' presentations during the course of the conference.

ANZALS Award for Best Paper

All full papers submitted for the conference will be considered for the Best Paper award. A double-blind, peer reviewed selection process will be used and referees asked to nominate the best papers submitted to the conference. The nominated papers will then be judged by a sub-committee of the Conference Scientific Committee.

The Best Paper Award will be judged on its relevance and importance to the field of leisure studies, originality and innovation, and clarity of explanation and expression.
