Social Science Visual Analysis Award

Rachel TanurIf you are a social science student whose work incorporates visual analysis, you may want to consider applying for the Rachel Tanur Memorial Prize. Aside from a new line on your CV, this award also comes with a cash prize of up to $2,500. The deadline is approaching at the end of the week so jump on this now if you'd like to apply. Don't have time to apply this year? Bookmark their webpage and keep it in mind for next year, as it will likely be offered again.

The Rachel Tanur Memorial Prize for Visual Sociology recognizes students in the social sciences who incorporate visual analysis in their work. The contest is open worldwide to undergraduate and graduate students in any social science. It is named for Rachel Dorothy Tanur (1958–2002) [pictured left], an urban planner and lawyer who cared deeply about people and their lives and was an acute observer of living conditions and human relationships.

The 2012 competition for the Rachel Tanur Memorial Prize for Visual Sociology will be judged by members of the Visual Sociology group of the International Sociological Association (ISA). Up to three prizes will be awarded at the Second ISA Forum of Sociology: Social Justice and Democratization, to be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina in August 2012.  Attendance at the forum is not a requirement. First prize is $2,500; second prize is $1,500; and third prize is $500.

Deadline: Friday, April 20
