The MMT have launched a call for entries for the Mausolus Essay Prize, with a deadline of 30 April 2015
To encourage the study and appreciation of historic monuments, the Mausolea and Monuments Trust (MMT) is inviting entries for the Mausolus Essay Prize, to be presented in 2015 in memory of our late Fellow Thomas Cocke, a former Chairman of the MMT, who was passionately interested in the evolution of church architecture. The £250 prize and publication in the journal of the Mausolea and Monuments Trust will be awarded by a distinguished judging panel whose members include Carolyn Cocke, Chair of the Mausolea and Monuments Trust, Fellows Roger Bowdler and Gavin Stamp, Gabriel Byng, editor of Mausolus, and Frances Sands, of Sir John Soane’s Museum.
Essays may be on any subject relating to mausolea or monuments, including, but not limited to, head stones, ledger stones, cemeteries, churchyards and other types of memorial. They may concern objects in Britain or abroad, of any time period. Essays must be no longer than 3,000 words (not including footnotes and bibliography) and can be illustrated with up to five figures. The footnotes and bibliography must be in ‘Chicago’ style. The deadline is 30 April 2015 and entries should be sent to Dr Gabriel Byng.
