New Author Award

The New Author Award was instituted in 1993 to recognize superior writing by previously unpublished archivists, and may be awarded to practicing archivists who have not had article-length writings published in professional journals or to students in an archival education program.

The New Author Award is presented in odd-numbered years for articles appearing in a two-year (four issue) cycle of Archival Issues. In 1995 the prize amount was generously increased by Council to $250 per award as a means of further encouraging new research and writing on archival topics.
