UCT Book Award nominations closing soon

14 September 2009

Nomination for the UCT Book Award has been extended to 16 September 2009. This award recognises outstanding books written by UCT staff, and may be made to a single-authored book or to multiple-authored books.

Fictional, artistic and musical works and the like, as well as publications in electronic form, will be considered alongside academic books in any category. These may include manuals and popular works.

No restriction is placed on the language in which the book is written, or on the format in which it is produced. The committee will also consider books for the Meritorious Publication Awards.

These awards recognise books in specialised fields that merit recognition for their contribution, and promising first-time publications by authors who deserve special recognition and support.

To be considered for the UCT Book Award and/or the Meritorious Publication Award, a book must have been published within the past five years.

Nominators must be UCT staff, who may also nominate their own work. Books previously nominated (except winners) may be re-nominated. Each nomination must be seconded and should include a letter of nomination, a copy of the book and substantive published reviews.

All nominations should be sent to Colleen Windvogel, Research Office, Department of Research and Innovation, 2 Rhodes Ave, Mowbray. For further information please contact Colleen Windvogel.
