GA Publishers' Awards

| More

Introduction

The Geographical Association Publishers' Awards recognise resources that make a significant contribution to geography in primary schools, secondary schools or colleges, and encourage the creative development of new materials.

Any kind of material can be submitted, including materials to enhance professional development, providing it has been first produced in the twelve months prior to the closing date for entries.

Publishers and authors are invited to enter resources in the following categories:

  • Early Years and Primary
  • Secondary and beyond
  • Professional Development (all phases)
  • Other

The Awards Ceremony

The GA Publishers’ Awards will be presented at the GA Annual Conference and Exhibition in April 2016 at the University of Derby. Winners will be invited to the Awards Presentation and printed in the Conference Handbook. A Gold Certificate will be given for the best overall entry, and Silver and/or Highly Commended Certificates may be awarded in each category.

The winners will receive permission to use the GA Publishers’ Award logo on the winning resource and on relevant marketing literature. As well as, exposure through the GA social media networks and coverage in the summer issue of GA Magazine sent to 5500 members.

Judging criteria

The judges will consider:

Impact - the significance of the contribution that the material is likely to make to the quality of geographical education in the UK.

Quality - the quality of the material in terms of geographical content, design, presentation and/or production.

Usability - the usefulness and appropriateness of the product in terms of its application in the geography classroom and/or professional development.

Originality - the originality of the concept or the approach on which the product is based.

Materials should, where appropriate, relate to the 2014 National Curriculum and take into account equal opportunities. Worksheets, books, software, DVDs, websites and other materials may be submitted. The decision of the judges will be final and binding. In the event of their being unable to identify an entry of sufficient merit, they may not make a GA Award in a particular category.

The deadline to submit an entry is the 4 December 2015.

Two copies of each entry should be submitted with a short report (maximum 300 words) on the significance of the material to geographical education, and a fee of £50 (£45 for registered charities).

Any kind of material can be submitted including print and electronic resources. Entries received after the closing date of 4 December 2015 will not be accepted. Unfortunately we cannot return resources submitted for entry.
