Andrew Goodwin Memorial Prize – call for submissions

Dear Colleagues,
This will hopefully be of interest to those of you who are postgraduate students, or to postgraduate students that you teach.

The 2022-23 round of the Andrew Goodwin Memorial Prize is open for submissions. All postgraduates who are currently registered at universities and colleges in the U.K. and Ireland and who are members of IASPM are eligible.

This prize is awarded for the best essay by a postgraduate student on any aspect of popular music from any disciplinary perspective. The value of the prize is £1,000 (and additional £500 prize for the runner-up) and publication of the winning essay on the Andrew Goodwin Memorial Prize web page on the IASPM UK and Ireland website.

Guidelines for submissions of essays (or video essays) are available at the link below:

We’ll look forward to seeing the submissions.

Best wishes, 

Adam Behr
