Entries to the British Records Association’s annual Janette Harley Prize close on 30 June. The prize is intended to generate interest in archives, and raise awareness of research and achievements in the world of archives. It is open to anyone, and applications are welcomed from individuals, on their own behalf or on behalf of others, and from representatives of organisations.
The prize of £350 will be awarded for the best / most original piece of work published in a monograph, journal or magazine, or otherwise made publicly available, which has promoted “the preservation, understanding, accessibility or study of archives”. The winning entry will be announced following BRA’s Annual General Meeting and Maurice Bond Memorial Lecture, to be held in London on 13 November 2019.
The joint winners of the 2018 Harley Prize were Julie Halls and Allison Martino, for their article “Cloth, Copyright, and Cultural Exchange: Textile Designs for Export to Africa at The National Archives of the UK”.
