ACS Awards


We are delighted to announce the first Angela Carter Society Awards. As you will know, the society seeks to celebrate and promote the study and appreciation of the life and work of Angela Carter, one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. This society aims to create an international community of Angela Carter scholars and passionate readers to share and discuss historic and contemporary developments in the field of Angela Carter studies. We have therefore initiated this prize to celebrate the best scholarly work being undertaken in the field. We are really keen to have submissions from early career researchers and postgraduates, as well as established academics.

This year, there are two separate prizes:

  1. Award for best Chapter/Journal Article – £50
  2. Postgraduate Essay Prize – £100

The prizes are for the best published chapter or peer-reviewed journal article published between 1 Jan 2017 – 31 Dec 2019.

Applications are open to members of the Angela Carter Society only – more information on membership and how to join.

Please apply via this online form, attaching a PDF of your submission by 31 March 2020UPDATE! THE DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL 1 SEPTEMBER 2020 due to the global pandemic.
