ANZALS Awards for Best Paper and Best Student Paper

Applications have now closed, but all full papers that were submitted for the conference are in the running for the Best Paper award, and students who are first author are eligible for the Best Student Paper award. A double-blind, peer reviewed selection process has been used and referees asked to nominate the best papers submitted to the conference. The nominated papers have then been 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.
