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

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.
The prize will be awarded at the annual Alan Saunders Lecture which takes
place as part of the annual AAP conference in July.
This Prize is sponsored by Taylor and Francis, publisher of the
