All are welcome to join us at University of Hudderfield to honour the winners of our annual original research and essay competition. The informal evening will start with a reception followed by the announcement of prize winners and awarding of their prizes. Refreshments will also be served.
The Yorkshire Society’s annual competition for essays on the history of Yorkshire was first held in 1987.
It is administered on the society’s behalf by the University of Huddersfield and the high reputation of the Prize is maintained by an adjudication panel of experienced academics drawn from the Yorkshire Universities of Huddersfield, Hull, Leeds, Sheffield and York.
The Beresford Award for longer essays of up to 10,000 words is worth £300, and the judges may make a second award of £150. For shorter essays, with a limit of 5,000 words, there is one prize, the Bramley Award, of £150.
