The winning author will receive a plaque and a $500 prize at the August 2023 AEJMC conference in Washington, D.C.

Entries must be received by February 1, 2023. Submit four hard copies of each book or an electronic copy (must be an e-Book or pdf manuscript in page-proof format) along with the author’s mailing address, telephone number, and email address to:
