The deadline is only a few days away, but I wanted to let others know about the Rachel Tanur Memorial Prize for Visual Sociology, brought to my attention by the American Statistical Society. From the website:
The purpose of the Rachel Tanur Memorial Prize for Visual Sociology is to encourage students to incorporate visual analysis in their study and understanding of social phenomena. The contest is open to undergraduate and graduate students (majoring in any social science). Students must be currently enrolled or have received their degrees no earlier than the end of the term finishing just before the meeting of the International Sociological Association (ISA) at which the prize is to be awarded. Entries for the second round of the contest (prizes to be awarded at the World Congress of Sociology, July 2010) must be received by May 1, 2010. Up to three cash prizes will be awarded, with the winners being chosen by May 15, 2010. The first prize will be $2500 (USD), the second $1500, and the third $500. It is anticipated that the prize will be awarded biennially.
