This prize rewards outstanding contributions to ECPR's political science blog, The Loop. It is awarded annually to the best blog article in political science or related fields, and carries a £500 award.
The inaugural prize was awarded in summer 2023. All articles published during the 2022 calendar year were eligible for nomination.
The Loop publishes short pieces on politics, policy programmes, societal and political issues. We showcase the work of the political science discipline at its best. Our readership extends beyond fellow political scientists, to include policy-makers, journalists, businesspeople and the general public.
