The competition is open to any interested party including students,
graduate students, junior faculty, and researchers unaffiliated with a
university or research institution. We would like to especially
encourage submissions from students, junior and unaffiliated
researchers, and authors belonging to marginalised communities or
communities currently less well represented by ADHO.
The competition is offering a minimum of 4 prizes of $500 (CAD) each.
Initial selection (for a prize of $200) is by abstract/proposal. A
further $300 will be awarded to the authors of the winning abstracts
upon satisfactory completion of a full-length paper based on their
original proposal. All submissions will be eligible for review and
publication in the ADHO journal, Digital Studies/Le champ numérique
