Henry Moore Institute Dissertation Prize

Each year we award two prizes for extended pieces of writing on contemporary, modern or historical sculpture.

At the Institute we understand the study of sculpture to encompass a wide range of approaches, mediums, disciplines and theories and we are open to receiving submissions relating to sculpture in the broadest possible sense. The Henry Moore Institute Dissertation Prizes are open to BA and MA students of all disciplines.

BA Dissertation: £200 cash prize
MA Dissertation: £300 cash prize

In addition, both will receive:

  • Henry Moore Institute selected publications to the cover price value of £50.
  • Publication of dissertation abstracts in the Henry Moore Institute newsletter.

This Prize is for a dissertation, submitted as part of course work within the past academic year at a UK university. Dissertations should not have previously been published or be in publication.

Applicants should include a letter from their academic organisation to indicate their course and place of study as well as a letter of support from an academic tutor or supervisor.

Applications for the 2021 Henry Moore Institute Dissertation Prize will open in Autumn 2021.
