The Trevor Reese Memorial Prize was established by the Institute of Commonwealth Studies in 1979. It is in the name of Dr Trevor Reese, a distinguished scholar of Australian and Commonwealth history, who was Reader in Imperial Studies at the Institute until his death in 1976. He was the author of several leading works in his field, and was both founder and first editor of the Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History. The Prize was established with the proceeds of contributions to a memorial fund by friends and colleagues of Trevor Reese throughout the Commonwealth and United States.

The Prize, of £1,000, is awarded every three years to the author of a work which has made a wide-ranging, innovative and scholarly contribution in the broadly-defined field of Imperial and Commonwealth History.

A public call for nominations for books in the relevant field published in the calendar year 2010, 2011 or 2012 is now open. Publishers or authors willing to submit titles for consideration should send two copies to Alegria Perez, Academic Support Officer, Institute of Commonwealth Studies, at the address below. Please note that multi-authored works are eligible but edited books are not. The deadline for submissions is 07 January 2013, 5.00pm.
