2021 BFE Student Prize

Submissions are invited for the BFE Student Prize that is awarded annually for the best student paper presented at the BFE Annual Conference. All students who are presenting papers at the online BFE Annual Conference hosted by Bath Spa University (8th-11th April 2021) are strongly encouraged to submit their papers for consideration. Only papers from students who are BFE members are eligible. This initiative is designed to support and recognise the work of student members of our scholarly community. The papers will be reviewed by a BFE prize panel.

Please note that your paper should not be significantly revised prior to submission. The text should be as for your 20-minute presentation and should not be more than 3000 words. Please do not submit a longer version of your paper as submissions that are clearly over length will be disregarded. If it is important for audio or audiovisual materials to be considered with the text of your paper, please include web links to these materials (on YouTube, Vimeo etc.), along with any necessary passwords to access links if they are private. Powerpoint or other presentation slides should not be included, though important images from slides can be incorporated into the body of the paper.

Papers should be sent as a PDF, Word or RTF attachment to the Chair of the BFE: chairatbfe.org.uk

The deadline for submissions is midnight Monday 26th April 2021 and the result will be announced by the end of May.

We look forward to receiving your paper.
