Thanks to a gift from Dr Alfred Bader we would like to announce the institution of an annual prize of €1,000 for the best original contribution on European art prior to 1950 written by an art historian younger than 35 at the time of submission. Entries for the first prize, with a maximum length of 20,000 words (including notes), can be submitted in English, Dutch, French or German, and must reach the editors of Simiolus before 1 January 2012. The editors will decide on the winning entry before 31 March 2012, will bear the costs of translation if necessary, and publish the article in Simiolus within a year.
