GA Publishers' Awards

award winning publications
| More


The GA Publishers' Awards aim to recognise material which is likely to make a significant contribution to geography in primary schools, secondary schools or colleges, and to encourage the creative development of new materials. This could include materials to enhance professional development.

Any kind of material can be submitted providing it has been first produced in the twelve months prior to the closing date for entries. Entries are invited in the following categories:

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

The awards

Awards will be presented at the GA Annual Conference. A citation bearing the logo of the Association will be presented to the author and publisher of the material and, where applicable, permission given to display the Association's endorsement of the material and to use the GA's Award logo in advertising the material.

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 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.

Judging criteria

Materials should, where appropriate, relate to the national curriculum and take into account equal opportunities. Worksheets, books, software, DVDs, websites and other materials may be submitted.

The judges will consider:

  • the significance of the contribution that the material is likely to make to the quality of geographical education in the UK
  • the quality of the material in terms of geographical content, design, presentation and/or production 
  • the usefulness and appropriateness of the product in terms of its application in the geography classroom and/or professional development
  • the originality of the concept or the approach on which the product is based.

Submission of entries

Two copies of each entry should be submitted with a completed entry form, a short report (maximum 300 words) on the significance of the material to geographical education, and a fee of £45.00 (£40.00 for registered charities – proof required). The price includes a link from the GA website award pages.

Entries must arrive at GA Headquarters by 5 December 2014. Please note that entries will not be returned.
