*AAP Media Prize – Call for Entries*
The Australasian Association of Philosophy (AAP) offers an annual prize of
$500 for the best philosophical piece(s) published by a professional
philosopher in the popular media in Australasia during the previous
calendar year. First awarded in 1999, the main criterion for the award of
the prize is the ability of the piece(s) to engage the interest of the
general public in philosophy or some philosophical issue. Consideration is
also given to the quality of the philosophical discussion and to the size
of the audience reached.
Previous winners of the AAP Media Prize include Russell Blackford (2017),
Matthew Beard (2016), Henry Martyn Lloyd (2015), Patrick Stokes (2014),

(2010) and John Armstrong (2009).
