The prize is open to scholars in all fields of political science, and candidates need not be affiliated with a Member institution.
Nominations must include, as 2 separate PDF files:

We strive to define outstanding contributions as inclusively as possible, and welcome nominations of candidates from non-traditional backgrounds.
Self-nominations are not accepted.
Members of the ECPR Executive Committee, ECPR Director, or Editors of any ECPR books, journals or blog are not eligible for this prize. However, we do not wish to penalise these individuals for their generous work within our organisation. Therefore, members of ECPR senior staff (EC, Director) are eligible to be nominated for prizes after their term has ended, and after a further three-year buffer period. Editors, meanwhile, are eligible to be nominated after their term has ended and after a one-year buffer period.
If a nominator attempts to nominate an excluded person, they will be informed of this policy by Harbour House staff, as well as the year in which the person will be eligible, if applicable.
