Since 2012 IASPM-ANZ has awarded two Publication Prizes.
The Open Publication Prize is awarded to the best paper examining aspects of popular music from outside the Australia-New Zealand region in a given year.
Both prizes are awarded by a panel of senior IASPM-ANZ members. Members interested in being considered for either category of the prize should keep an eye on the mailing list or contact one of the executive (with calls for submissions usually happening mid year).
Eligibility – You must be a current IASPM-ANZ member. Only one submission per member per prize. Submissions must be peer-reviewed academic texts (monograph, journal article or book chapter) with a publication date within the range 1 January – 31 December of the previous year. Incumbent IASPM-ANZ Executive members are ineligible. In the case of a co-authored article, both authors must agree to the publication being entered.
