The competition is open to all, but those new to the subject (current students, early-career scholars, independent researchers and anyone new to printing history) are particularly encouraged to take part by sending their article (between 4000 and 8000 words, in Word format) to the Journal Editor (, along with a short covering-letter describing their research. The results will be announced before the end of the calendar year.
