There will be two prizes:
- An open prize with an award of US$ 1000 for the best submission.
- An award of up to US$ 500 towards travel expenses to the next ASC conference for the best submission sent in by someone of 35 years or under (age on the date of submission—see Schedule).
Both winners will receive a year’s complimentary membership of the ASC, and will be able to attend the next (2011) conference without charge.
In addition, if there are, in the opinion of the organizers and judges, enough good submissions, publication (of those in publishable format) will be arranged in a reputable journal.
The organizers reserve the right not to make either of the awards if there are no submissions of adequate standard, in the opinion of the final judging panel (see below).
