Opportunity for Essay Writers to Win £3000 at The Alpine Fellowship Academic Prize 2020

The Alpine Fellowship announced the Alpine Academic Prize for the best piece of academic essay writing on the theme of the 2020 Alpine Fellowship: Forgiveness and Retribution.


The winner and two runners up are invited to attend the symposium. The winner receives £3,000 cash prize and is invited to attend the symposium. Runners-up are invited to attend the symposium and offered reimbursement of travel expenses up to £500.


  • Open to all nationalities, aged 18 and above. 
  • A maximum of 4000 words per entry. 
  • Academic writing is to be construed broadly, by way of contrast with creative writing, as writing that a) advances and defends an argument on the question and/or that b) makes a systematic and appreciable contribution to knowledge in academic disciplines, concerning the topic of the symposium. 
  • Work from different disciplinary (or interdisciplinary) approaches including, but not limited to, philosophy, history, sociology, literary studies, political theory, biology, anthropology, and psychology will be considered. 
  • Prime consideration will be the ability of the piece to speak in an engaging way to a general intellectual audience.
  • Limited to one entry per person, and one may not submit the same piece for the Alpine Fellowship Writing Prize. 
  • The text must not have been published, self-published or accepted for publication in print or online, or have won or been placed in another competition at any time. 
  • Judging is anonymous, so please ensure your name does not appear anywhere on the documents you submit.
