First World War Armoured Warfare Article

29th January 2016

The Tank Museum, in association with the University of Wolverhampton, is to award a £1,000 Prize for the best article on Armoured Warfare. 

Entries are invited from Undergraduate or Postgraduate students at any UK university. Articles submitted for consideration must be a piece of original research concerning one of two topics. Click here for more information.

Archive and Library Manager, Stuart Wheeler, said, "This is a fantastic opportunity for a student to come and take a deeper look at the Museum's archival holdings on armoured warfare." 

Entries will be judged by a panel that includes two academics and two representatives of The Tank Museum. Articles submitted to the competition may be published in an abbreviated form in Tracklink, the magazine of The Friends of The Tank Museum, and the winner will be published in full in the British Journal for Military History. The Prize will be awarded at The Tank Museum’s Tankfest Chairman’s lunch, held in June.

The Prize is being funded by the Arts Council.

Entries are to be submitted electronically by 12:00 on Friday 13th May 2016.
